Today's Verse : Acts 5:30


May 30, 2012

The God of our fathers raised Jesus from the dead -- whom you
had killed by hanging him on a tree.
-- Acts 5:30

Peter is making clear that his faith in Jesus didn't just begin
with Jesus. It began with the Patriarchs, the great Jewish fathers.
The God who blessed them also raised Jesus from the dead, even
though Jesus had been executed in the most heinous and degrading
way possible for a faithful Jew -- he was nailed to a cross,
something that was both illegal and a sign of being cursed under
Jewish Law. He raised Jesus from the dead and exalted him and made
him our Savior and our Lord. Praise God!

Thank you, dear Father, for showing your power over evil, sin,
hate, jealousy, and death. In the name of Jesus, my Lord and
Savior, I offer my praise and thanksgiving. Amen.
