Our Primary Message

Devotion for the Week...

When Jesus showed Himself to His disciples after the resurrection, He reassured them that everything that had happened to Him was according to the Father's plan as revealed in Scripture. "Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures" (Luke 24:45). What a relief that must have been for them! Not only was Jesus there with them, but everything was exactly as it was supposed to be. You can almost feel the collective relief.

Then Jesus continued with this: "It was also written that this message would be proclaimed in the authority of his name to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: ‘There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent.’ (v. 47).

This should be our primary message: There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent.

We can make teaching others about God complicated, full of rules and regulations, or we can simply teach them that there is forgiveness of sins available to anyone and everyone who repents.

It may not be the easiest conversation starter, especially if we don't know the other person well, but if we allow God to lead us, there will be moments when we're able to share this simple and profound truth with people who need to hear it. And, of course, everyone needs to hear it.
