“Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” Acts 2:36 (NIV)
Let everyone know! Make no mistake! There are many things humans are capable of getting wrong. There are so many things each day where we can muddle up or construe. Some things get us into trouble. Some things could get us into a lot of trouble. If we get too out of line we could wind up in jail. If we are not careful we could get hurt or killed by our mistakes or misjudgment. But there are bigger issues as well. There is the question of eternity! Can we afford to get this one wrong?
We each hold some guilt. We might not like to accept it. But we have information that we all may not always take seriously enough. Just what are we doing right now about the question over Jesus as Lord and Christ? Is it an urgent one? Can we waste more time? Could we leave where we stand with Jesus and push it off for another day? What about later today?
If we are not standing exactly as close to our Saviour right now, who is to say that we will get another chance? Could there be a bus coming that we might not see before we step out into the street?
You know our failures. Please help us not ever be wrong in at least one area. Help us to make urgent and keep before us always just where we stand with You! Be our Lord now so that we can live to see You in Your glory some day!
