Today’s daily devotion is based on Acts 13:32,33, “We tell you the good news: What God promised our fathers he has fulfilled for us, their children, by raising up Jesus.”
Almost 2,000 years ago, the apostle Paul and his companion Barnabas spoke in the Jewish synagogue of Pisidian Antioch. They revealed a message about a particular rabbi named Jesus. Paul said, “God has brought the Savior Jesus, as he promised” (Acts 13:23).
Paul taught a Bible lesson in the synagogue. He demonstrated how the history of Israel pointed to the coming of Jesus. Even the death of Jesus fulfilled the words of the prophets read every Sabbath. Paul told them the good news that Jesus had risen from his grave. This astounding miracle revealed Jesus’ death as the fulfillment of God’s promise to punish one man for the sins of all.
All other false messiahs, dead and buried. Jesus Christ died, was buried rose to eternal life on the third day. The one true Messiah. We tell you the good news: What God promised he has fulfilled for us by raising up Jesus.
Please pray with me, God of the prophets; you have made your message clear to the world. Please help us tell others so that all may know the good news that has come to all through Jesus Christ, our one and only Savior. Amen.
