People's Bible Notes for Acts 2:21


Ac 2:21 Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord, etc. To turn to the Lord for salvation in his appointed way. It means far more than simply prayer. He who would call on the name of the Lord for salvation must do more than say, "Lord, Lord, open unto us" (Lu 13:25). He must hear and obey (Mt 7:21).

  • MockingBird for verse 21
    This is an on going thing. It is perpetual . Praise God I can call on the name of the Lord and be saved from what I need to be delivered from . This is faith in the living God Jesus Christ. I believe that Jesus came That He died and that He rose from the dead Therefore I am saved . He is seated at the right hand of the Father making intersession for me. Praise God forever more.
  • Vincent for verse 21
    Call on His name acknowledge that He died on the cross for our sins, having faith in your belief, have a solid relation with the father and being obedient to his word, If you love me you would obey me is what Jesus said. Salvation is a free gift nothing we can do to begin to pay Him for it, So if we simply believe he died on the cross for our transgressions and obey his word we will be saved and have our name written in the Lambs book of life! Easy cause we can not repay Him but we can obey and believe in what He said He did, He did! The devil will try and tell you that something that great is neither free or easy! God knows we can 't repay what his Son did so but if we just acknowledge what he did and thank Him for such a great salvation we will be saved.
  • Joseph Gakura for verse 21
