The Holy Spirit of God – Spreading the Plan of Redemption in Christ - Friday, July 20th

Therefore, let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ—this Jesus whom you crucified.” Now, when they heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brethren, what shall we do?” Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself.” Acts 2:36-39

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

The spread of God’s redemptive plan to the world began with Israel. Their response to the message they heard from Peter was, “What shall we do?” What a great question. The key to life is asking this question seriously and being willing to give oneself fully to the answer. The answer is: become a disciple of Jesus Christ. Today’s Scripture shows us that becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ involves acknowledging one’s sinfulness and need for a savior (repentance), recognizing Christ as the Savior of the world and placing faith in him for the forgiveness of sins, receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit, and being baptized.

The prospect for becoming a disciple of Christ in the fullness of how our passage describes it, remains open to all who are far off right on down through the ages. The redemptive plan of God spread to us and will spread out from us to those who are still far off and in need of eternal salvation in Christ.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, you are our awesome God and your plan of redemption is awesome. Thank you for calling me, who was far off, to yourself. I am truly burdened for those who are still far off and I look forward to how you will use me to help make new disciples of Jesus Christ. Amen!

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers
