Don’t Miss The Most Important Part!
By: Liya Abramova
Then He said to them, “These are My words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in His name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem…” (Luke 24. 44-47)
This is the moral of the story, the great end, the culmination of the message of the Bible. When Jesus rose from dead, and came to His disciples again, He explained to them that the Scriptures told of His suffering, and the following glory…of repentance and forgiveness. The glory did not come without suffering, and forgiveness did not come without repentance. This is what the Book is about. If you were following along with the Bible reading plan, this is what you should remember. If you didn’t read with the Bible reading plan, this is the part you can’t miss. Is there something on your mind—a sin that you can’t let go? It’s time to bring it to Christ. Have faith!
