But others in the crowd ridiculed them, saying, "They're just drunk, that's all!"
Then Peter stepped forward with the eleven other apostles and shouted to the crowd, "Listen carefully, all of you, fellow Jews and residents of Jerusalem! Make no mistake about this. These people are not drunk, as some of you are assuming. Nine o'clock in the morning is much too early for that. No, what you see was predicted long ago by the prophet Joel: ..."
Loving Father, please give me a hunger to experience your work through the Spirit rather than being skeptical about things I cannot explain. At the same time, Father, I don't want to be duped by false emotionalism. So, please help me ground my experiences in Scripture and in Jesus' desire to save others. You are Sovereign, dear Father. Use every way you deem effective to save all peoples. Please use me, as well, to welcome new believers and help ground them in the truth of Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.
Unstoppable! is a one-year devotional guide through the book of Acts. Each devotional consists of a scripture passage, a reflection and a prayer. The reflection opens up the day's scripture and shows how it challenges one to live for Jesus.
