SATURDAY 4TH MARCH 2017 MORNING
Acts 2:36-38 New International Version (NIV)
36 “Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.”
37 When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”
38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
This is the end of the Apostle Peter’s sermon on the day of Pentecost. After this 3000 people believed the Gospel as preached by Peter and they were baptized. This is recognized as the official birth of the Christian Church.
Thank God that you are part of the World wide Christian church which began in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost.
Pray for the church to continue to grow in numbers and spiritual depth.

36 Basi nyumba yote ya Israeli na wajue yakini ya kwamba Mungu amemfanya Yesu huyo mliyemsulibisha kuwa Bwana na Kristo.
37 Walipoyasikia haya wakachomwa mioyo yao, wakamwambia Petro na mitume wengine, Tutendeje, ndugu zetu?
38 Petro akawaambia, Tubuni mkabatizwe kila mmoja kwa jina lake Yesu Kristo, mpate ondoleo la dhambi zenu, nanyi mtapokea kipawa cha Roho Mtakatifu.
Maneno haya juu ni sehemu ya mwisho ya mahubiri ya Mtume Petro siku ya Pentecoste. Baada ya mahubiri hayo watu 3000 waliamini na walitubu na kubatizwa kama Wakristo. Huu ndio mwanzo rasmi wa kanisa la Kristo.
Tangu siku ile, kule Yerusalemu, Kanisa limekua sana na kusambaa dunia nzima.
