THE PLAN OF SALVATION
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
THE QUESTION:
"Now when they heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, 'Brethren, what shall we do?" (Acts 2:37)

THE ANSWER:
"And Peter said to them, 'Repent, and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." (Acts 2:38)

THE RESULT:
"So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and there were added that day about three thousand souls." (Acts 2:41)

THE CAUSE:
"...this Man, delivered up by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and put Him to death." (Acts 2:23)
