God’s Unchanging Agenda 27 of 32

There is no reconciliation with God without repentance. This old time word means “turning around.” This is something God must graciously enable. But we must take the opportunity when it is offered. God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. May we be found righteous and faithful when he comes to claim his.

 

SCRIPTURE Luke 24:36-53 Repentance and forgiveness preached in his name to all nations.

 

REFLECT “Peace be with you” (24:36), this is the resurrected Jesus’ standard greeting when he encounters one of his servants. Do you have peace in your heart right now? Is there something you need to release to him? Is there a secret sin you need to confess and be cleansed of? Pray and do what needs to be done to be filled with his peace once more.

REFLECT “He opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures” (24:44-45). What are the two main points of the message that is to be preached in his name to all nations (24:47)?

REFLECT What does Jesus tell them they need to wait for in order to do the job he assigns (24:49)?
