God Redeems His People

A woman prays outside

“Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.”—Acts 2:36 NIV

In this verse, Peter proclaimed that Jesus is the Messiah and redeemed himself for betraying Jesus on the night of His trial. This powerful lesson of redemption remains true today for all of us. Even if you have strayed from a life of faith, or made a bad decision, your return to Him will be welcomed. God will forgive you.

Today's Prayer:

Because of You, my Heavenly Father, my sins are forgiven and new mercies fall like manna from heaven.
