Daily Bible Reading: Acts 13:24 - 52
Verse of the Day: Acts 13:47 – “For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee for a light of the Gentiles,
That thou shouldest be for salvation unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
In this verse from today’s reading, we see Paul and Barnabus quoting from the Old Testament. They are quoting from Isaiah 49:6. In this section of Isaiah (chapters 49-53), Isaiah paints a picture of the Suffering Servant, the Messiah, or as we know Him, Jesus Christ.
Even in the Old Testament Scriptures, God had disclosed that His salvation was and would be for all nations. That shows that when Jesus gave the Church its “marching orders” in Acts 1:8 it was not a change or a new direction. His plan has always been for anyone who would accept it.
We are called today to share this message of Jesus Christ with everyone and anyone who will listen.
Prayer: Jesus, may I accept and submit to Your Call to share the good news to all. Amen.
