HOPE

Acts 2:26-27

 

Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

 

 

LESSON

 

God’s presence with David made him happy and hopeful. Likewise, the fact that Jesus was now at God’s right hand, made Peter happy and hopeful. David said he would not go “to Hades , and his body would not “suffer decay.”

This was a poetic way of expressing his belief that God would not allow him to experience ultimate humiliation. David referred to himself as God’s devout one. Peter saw this fulfilled literally in Jesus’ resurrection from the grave after only three days. Jesus was the supremely Devout One.

 

Memory Verse: Psalm 147:11
