“But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them out. ‘Go, stand in the temple courts,’ he said, ‘and tell the people the full message of this new life.'” Acts 5:19-20.
The message of the new life is the message of salvation that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. The word ‘salvation’ includes forgiveness of sins, restoration, healing, help, safety, victory, peace, prosperity, and freedom. Jesus Christ is the Author of our salvation. His death, cross, resurrection and empowerment of His Disciples began an era of salvation to ALL mankind. God loves all people.
When He was born, wise men sought Him and found Him and worshipped Him. Wise men are still seeking to find Jesus Christ, The Savior of the world. His gift of salvation is freely offered to all people. Jesus said, “I did not come to judge the world, but to save it.” John 12:48. The Bible encourages us to: “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved – you and your household.” Acts 16:31. This is the message of new life.
Today, pray and ask Jesus Christ to forgive you of all your mistakes and failures and by faith receive His love, mercy and forgiveness for a new life in Christ. Your new life in Christ begins with a rebirth of your spirit in relationship with God, renewal of your soul by the wisdom of God and refreshing of your heart with the peace of God.
Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.
