Promise of the Father
And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, "which," He said, "you have heard from Me;"— Acts 1:4 NKJV
Power From On High
"But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."— Acts 1:8 NKJV
Peter Was Not Perfect
Peter was not an educated man. He made many mistakes. He struggled with his faith, and sometimes he was simply overcome by fear.
Peter Was Powerful
Peter was transformed by the Holy Spirit. Reaching the world for Christ requires a strong prayer life, boldness from the Holy Spirit, being biblically sound, and replacing fear with faith.
as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,— 2 Peter 1:3 NKJV
