Scripture of The Day

 “Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know. This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross. But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.”  Acts 2:22-24



From ” Jesus Is Alive-David Mathis”

His resurrection from the dead declares once and for all that Jesus is unstoppable. The power the risen, glorified Christ now wields is “the power of an indestructible life” (Hebrews 7:16).  In fact, as Peter came to know, and to preach at Pentecost, “God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it”  (Acts 2:24).

As Paul wrote to the Romans, “We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him” (Romans 6:9).

Jesus’ disciples could not stop their mouths. Jesus was alive, and now it was their unceasing joy to declare it! But the resurrection of Christ declares even more for those of us who are joined to Him by faith. Not only is he unstoppable—so are we! “I am the resurrection and the life,” he says. “Whoever believes in me … shall never die” (John 11:25-26). What is the power at work in us, even now—we who have faith in him? We know “the immeasurable greatness of [God’s] power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead”  (Ephesians 1:19-20).

As his disciples, how can we not delight to spread the news? How are you spreading the good news in your everyday life right now?
