Hebrews 2:3-4

‘‘So if we refuse this great way of being saved, how can we hope to escape? The Lord himself was the first to tell about it, and people who heard the message proved to us that it was true. God himself showed that his message was true by working all kinds of powerful miracles and wonders. He also gave his Holy Spirit to anyone he chose to.’’ Hebrews 2:3-4

Here is the crux of the singularity of the gospel message. What do we do with the gospel of Christ if we do not accept it? There are so many who claim to love God, desire to go to heaven, want to avoid hell, and consider that God is too loving to condemn anyone to eternal punishment. Somehow, they assume that since Jesus is love, we will all get off scot free. In the meantime, what are they doing with the gospel of Jesus Christ?


Fortieth Day (40 of 50)
Series: Easter Devotional

Jeremiah 9:23-24

‘‘Yahweh says: ‘Don’t brag about your wisdom or strength or wealth. If you feel you must brag, then have enough sense to brag about worshiping me, Yahweh. What I like best is showing kindness, justice, and mercy to everyone on earth.’’’ Jeremiah 9:23-24

Kindness, justice, and mercy have no need to brag. They are not focused on the one employing them. They find their focus instead on meeting the needs of others. Their rewards are internal, not external. They are their own fulfillment, not requiring the praise or the apparent inferiority of others. They create worth in their own right, without the need of comparison with others.
