Today’s Reading: Luke 24
‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ Luke 24:7
As we come to the end of the Gospel of Luke, we come to the end of Jesus’ life on earth. What a journey it has been! I pray you have been blessed by spending your daily readings on this book as you read, reflect, and pray. From Jesus’ birth to his life and healings, to his death, and now resurrection, this is not just any story, but the true account of our Messiah!
You may have been a Christian your entire life and have heard the gospel over and over and over again. My friend, this story should never grow old! I know it may be tempting to tune out when your pastor is presenting the gospel or you read it in a book or hear it in a podcast, but don’t lose your awe and wonder of this story; this good news. So many other religions require its followers to make sacrifices, but not our God. Instead, he sent his only Son to be a sacrifice for us so that we may live forever with him. Don’t forget that this is so amazing and unique!
Spend some time in prayer thanking God for His Word, and specifically, for the Gospel of Luke. Thank him for his sacrifice on the cross and his love for you. Ask him to help you to always look at the gospel of Jesus Christ in awe and wonder.
If you haven’t accepted Christ as your Savior. Today is the day! Ask him to forgive your sins and let him know you believe he is the Messiah and you're choosing to follow Him. It’s that simple! After you’ve done this, make sure you find a local church as soon as possible so that you can get involved, keep learning, and be held accountable. I’m praying for you!
