At our Friday Night Fellowship Meeting for the last Friday in May, John Trimming from community will lead us in a reflection on Peter and Pentecost.
After Peter’s betrayal of the Lord during his Passion, he experienced his own emptiness. The Lord Jesus restored him in love at one of his resurrection appearances, allowing him to express love, and reaffirming his command to Peter to feed his sheep.
But what produced the boldness and wisdom in Peter that we see in Acts chapters 1 and 2? Winning thousands to Christ, and confronting those who weeks previously had crucified the Lord?
So soon after Peter’s public weakness and failure, how did the gift of the Holy Spirit (the promise of the Father) transform Peter into the “Rock” that Christ had prophesied, “strong in the strength of the Lord”?
Join us as we seek the Lord together…
