And hearing this…

“37And, hearing this, they were pierced in heart and said to Peter and the rest of the Apostles, “What may we do, men, brothers?” 38And Peter said to them, “Change your hearts, and let each of you be baptized upon the name of Jesus the Anointed, for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39For the promise is to you and to your children and to those far away, as many as the Lord our God will call to himself.” 40And with many words more he testified to them and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.” 41So those who accepted his word were baptized, and that day about three thousand souls were added, 42And they devoted themselves steadfastly to the Apostles’ teachings and communal life, in the breaking of bread and in prayers. 43And reverence came to every soul; and through the Apostles came many wonders and signs. 44And all those who had faith were at the same place and owned all things communally, 45And they sold their properties and possessions, and distributed to everyone, according as anyone had need. 46And from day to day they steadfastly remained in the Temple in concord of spirit and, breaking bread in one house after another, they shared their food in gladness and simplicity of heart, 47Praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And day by day the Lord added those who were being saved to their company.” The book of Acts in the Holy Bible
