Scripture of the Day - August 27, 2012

Acts 2:38  Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
39  For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

Peter was explaining to the people what to do to save themselves. Save themselves from what, you may ask? From eternal damnation. God does not play games. If you reject Him, He will reject you entry into heaven and you will live eternity without Him. That is not something to take lightly. 
Next question...who gave Peter authority to tell people how to be saved?  Jesus Christ himself did...He said to Peter  "And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." Matthew 16:19  The one who has the keys unlocks the door.
So the bottom line is... if we want to be saved we have to follow after Peter's instructions.
