Providence 365, Week 17 - 4/24/2011 - Acts 2:22-24

Providence 365, Week 17 (Will be posting my layout later)

"Christ is risen!" - "He is risen indeed!"

For centuries, Christians have been greeting one another on Easter morning with these words. And, we can join with believers through the ages with the same salutation and rejoice with the saints on Earth and in Heaven. We serve a risen Savior who deserves all glory and praise.

Bible Gateway - Acts 2:22-24 (GOD’S WORD Translation)

Men of Israel, listen to what I say: Jesus from Nazareth was a man whom God brought to your attention. You know that through this man God worked miracles, did amazing things, and gave signs. By using men who don’t acknowledge Moses’ Teachings, you crucified Jesus, who was given over to death by a plan that God had determined in advance. But God raised him from death to life and destroyed the pains of death, because death had no power to hold him.

In Acts 2: 22-24, Peter preached to the crowd at Pentecost, declaring the works of Christ in life and death, including these words:

"...this man, delivered up by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God..."

In God's gracious Providence, He provided the double cure for our sin. By His death and resurrection, He not only took our sin away, but he also gave us His own righteousness. May you rejoice today, remembering His gracious salvation.
