Truth in our Faith

June 19, 2020

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!

My name is Darren. I started sharing devotions in June 2019. As one of the ministry leaders at my church. One reason why I started devotions is because of the lack of inspiration and motivation in our lives. It is hard to be encouraged with a lot of negativity going around. I invite you to be encouraged by the word of God. Our struggles can be personal, at the workplace, and the lack of community in our lives. When we go through hard times, we need the word of God. Please read them and be encouraged. I also started a podcast talking about racism and discrimination. Please take a moment to check that out as well. Afternoon Coffee Break with Darren Watts.
