The Good News - For Man


"Men of Israel, listen to this; Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs which God did through Him, as you yourself know" (Acts 2:22).

Jesus was sent to us at just the right time. Many through their actions refused to acknowledge God. In many cases they saw wealth as their God and thought that they could control their own lives. Many refused to believe that He was the source of great blessings and rebelled. Against this backdrop (sound familiar?) Jesus came into the world. Today's verse shows Jesus as the great gift to all mankind. Jesus' claim that He was the Son of God was supported by miracles, wonders and signs. It was God's intention all along to send His Son to the cross, but the GOOD NEWS is found two verses later..."But God raised Him from the dead, freeing Him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep it's hold on Him" (V24). Death of course is not good news, but resurrection is! Through the resurrection, death was conquered and that is very good news! "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?.....But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Cor.15:55 & 57). The good news is that we are all witnesses through the Word of God. It is the great and magnificent Lordship of our Savior Jesus Christ. The good news is that we are no longer held captive by sin....The good news is that we can be forgiven and move on...We are freed from the guilt of our sins...The good news is that we can live a rich and abundant life now and have eternal life with God! We serve an amazing God...This is great news...

Have a wonderful day...Serve the Lord with gladness.... Love mark Phil. 4:11
