Today's Verse: Acts 4:28 (KJV)

Wednesday, April 28, 2004

For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.
— Acts 4:28 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

The cross of Golgotha, the sacrifice of Jesus for our sin, was no after-thought, mistake, or revised formula. Jesus came as God's anointed, his holy Messiah, to die for the sins of the people and bring life and immortality to us. Those who were evil and conspired to kill him to keep their place and their position were doing only what God knew they would do; he just ransomed what was intended for evil by a few and made it the source of salvation for all.

My Prayer...

Almighty God and loving Father, thank you for your awesome sacrifice that fulfills your demand for justice and allows you to dispense your rich mercy and grace. Thank you Jesus, in whose name I pray, for your loving sacrifice, your holy example, and your promise to return for me. Amen.
