Word of the day: 24 But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death because death couldn’t keep its hold on him. Acts 2:24 NIV
Discussion Board: When Jesus died on the cross, it pained many people during those times. After the third day, God rose Jesus up from the dead. Many people could not believe it. Verse 32 says, “God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses to it. Peter’s message about Jesus would have been laughed at or ignored if Jesus didn’t die. Our faith and credibility rest on this truth. One reason is that Christ’s resurrection means the sacrifice of sin is not acceptable to God, but he forgives us. Another reason is we can conquer death. In other words, overcome death. The last reason is the Son of God, and his name can be trusted. Our faith lies in this truth, so when you share your faith, do not leave the execution out.
Prayer: Father, we owe you more than you owe us. We do not deserve what we have, but you still manage to bless us every day. I pray we can be more accepting and loving. In Jesus’ name. Amen!
