1/31/15 Daily Devotion

Acts 2:40-41 With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.

With many words, Peter warned them about going astray, choosing their own paths, refusing to believe. He gave them the opportunity to repent, the opportunity to be baptized, the opportunity to receive forgiveness and salvation. Some reached for Christ, and some refused. Some reached and experienced forgiveness, salvation, and the entrance of the Spirit into their lives, and others walked away unaffected by the events that had occurred. The same happens today. We present the message and the opportunity to change, and they have to make their decision. It can’t be forced. It can’t be made on their behalf. It has to be a decision that they make themselves, a personal decision. Once we have presented the evidence, all we can do is pray that they allow God to work in their hearts and show them the path to righteousness. So without those who are willing to bring forth the message, there would be no opportunity. Thus the message must be sent, and it can only be sent through those who have been changed by the shed blood of Jesus on the cross of Calvary.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me share of Your love and forgiveness openly and powerfully will all who will allow.
