Conversions in Acts (5)

In the past three devotions, we have learned something amazing — thousands of people became followers of Jesus. God convicted these people to change their hearts and lives, leave their old lives of sin, believe in Jesus, be baptized in Him and fellowship with their brothers and sisters in Christ.
Do you think you have been amazed enough? Well, let’s look at verse 14 of our Bible Reading for today. I don’t want you to miss it. Carefully and slowly read this verse. “And more and more people believed in the Lord (Jesus), and many men and women were added to the group of believers.” Wow! We have only studied 5 of the 28 chapters in the book of Acts, and we are amazed again. So many conversions — how exciting!
These verses show us that God truly wants to save us. He sent His Son, Jesus, into the world to die and rise from the dead. Why? So our sins may be forgiven.
Thank God today for His plan of salvation through Jesus.
