The Big Secret


"The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem" (Lk.24:46-47).

In today's verses, Jesus is among His disciples after the resurrection. He certainly had their rapt attention and was ready to fill in the blanks of the complete story that they had not quite understood. He gave them the power to understand the scriptures. The disciples were Jesus' special students, but until now they were still in pre-school... When Jesus along with Peter, James and John were coming down off the Mount of Transfiguration (Mk 9), He told them not to reveal what they had seen until after His resurrection... Now was the time! They now knew their ABCs and numbers! So... What's the "Big Secret?" Since we've heard it so many times, it may not seem like a secret to us. If we've read the Old Testament, we know that Israel had preferred status as God's special people. The secret revealed here is that God's kingdom is expanding. It was not just about Israel anymore; It was about all humanity... and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached to all nations... Thankfully, that means us too! Through Jesus Christ, we get to be a part of God's kingdom. Sometime in your prayers today, be sure to thank God that we are included in His master plan. Lets all give thanks today for the blessing of being a part of His kingdom... The secret's out...

Have a wonderful day... Make a difference... Love mark Phil.4:11
