Today’s daily devotion is based on Acts 13:32,33 “We tell you the good news: What God promised our ancestors he has fulfilled for us, their children, by raising up Jesus.”
Throughout the Old Testament, God promised that he would send a Savior who would rescue all people from sin. All those promises would mean nothing if God did not do what he had promised. God did back up his promises with actions. Just as he had said he would, he sent his only Son, Jesus, to be our Savior. In keeping with everything that God had promised, Jesus lived the perfect life that God requires and died the death necessary to pay for all our sins. And the definitive proof that God has kept all his promises is the fact that Jesus has risen from the dead.
Easter, which we celebrated just a few weeks ago, is our guarantee that God has done everything that he promised to do. In Jesus, he has forgiven all our sins. In Jesus, he has declared us holy in his sight. God has kept his word. That truly is good news; now and forever!
Please pray with me, Heavenly Father, I, a miserable sinner before you, praise you for keeping all your promises in Jesus. Amen.
