Acts 2:37

When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”

At the beginning of Peter’s message the people were asking, “What does this mean?” At the end they asked, “What shall we do?”

Any sermon must take the hearer to the place of wanting to do something about what they have heard. For that to happen there needs to be a provocation of the heart.
Some sermons stimulate thoughts.
Others stimulate laughter. Still others stimulate impressive accolades for the oratory skill.
We need sermons which cut to the heart. Sermons that cause people to stop, to pause their journey, that reach into the centre of a person and their activity. A sermon that becomes everything. That demands a response. Where the only reply has to be “what shall we do?”
