FORGIVENESS FOR EVERYONE

Journal Entry by Judy Mortomore

S - Scripture  Luke 24: 47-48 (NLT)
‘With My authority, take this message of repentance to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: that ‘there is forgiveness of sins’ ‘for all who turn to Me’, you are witnesses of all these things.’ 

O - Observation
Jesus gave us His authority to take the message of who he is and what he has done to all nations.  The message is simple – ‘there is forgiveness of sins’ – available ‘to and for everyone’  who come to Him, who turn from the way they are going to follow Jesus Christ.

A - Application
We cannot keep the message of Jesus’s death and resurrection to ourselves.  As I witness to what He has done in my life – what He has saved me from/forgiven me of/freed me from – why would I not want that for other people?  ‘forgiveness is available to everyone’ no matter what they have done, no matter who they are – so grateful! 

P - Prayer
Thank you for the people you have put in my world, for me to love, serve and show them who you are.  Help me to keep your message simple, that you died and rose again for them and that you freely love everyone.
