36 So let it be clearly known by everyone in Israel that God has made this Jesus whom you crucified to be both Lord and Messiah!” 37 Peter’s words convicted them deeply, and they said to him and to the other apostles, “Brothers, what should we do?” 38 Peter replied, “Each of you must turn from your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 This promise is to you and to your children, and even to the Gentiles-all who have been called by the Lord our God.” 40 Then Peter continued preaching for a long time, strongly urging all his listeners, “Save yourselves from this generation that has gone astray!” 41 Those who believed what Peter said were baptized and added to the church-about three thousand in all. 42 They joined with the other believers and devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, sharing in the Lord’s Supper and in prayer.

This is the age old question asked by man, “What should we do?” But in order for man to ask himself this question, he has to realize his sin. The world we live in today does not see sin. Society does not want to be told that what they are doing is sin. So they label it something else. It is called a disease or they state I was born this way. People do not want to hear that what they are doing is contrary to the Word of God and is sin. As we get closer to the end of this age, we will see this happen more and more. What was once good will become bad and what was once bad will become good. As Christians we need to ask ourselves, “What should we do?” If there are people you are praying for to know the love of God and salvation, then we must bind the spirit of lawlessness that grips their hearts and minds. Once people choose sin and continue in it, the sin becomes less and less wrong. It is justified in their minds as normal so they do not feel bad about themselves. They become deceived. We need to pray and loose the strongholds of deception and lies that holds them and then bind them to the work of the Cross. We bind them to grace and forgiveness and to the Blood of Jesus. The Holy Spirit will begin to remove the strongholds that keep them from seeing the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You can not pray salvation for them but you can release the power of the sin that holds them and release the power of God to show them. Then they will ask, “What should I do to be saved?” Keep praying, keep believing and God will keeping moving in their lives to bring them to this point.
Have a God Day!
