Today’s devotion is based on Acts 2:23, “This man (Jesus) was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross.”
Jesus was sent to serve as the Savior of the world. Though innocent, he was condemned to death and crucified. But all this happened according to God’s purpose and foreknowledge. God used the horrible determination of wicked people for his own wonderful purpose—to save us from our sins so we can live as his mouth, hands, and feet on this earth.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, help me today to do the job you have given me—to glorify and honor you serving others in word and deed. Give me a heart that sees every person’s need to know about your mercy and your power. In Jesus’ saving name, I pray. Amen
