Acts 15:8-9

Verse“God knows people’s hearts, and he confirmed that he accepts Gentiles by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as he did to us.  He made no distinction between us and them, for he cleansed their hearts through faith.”

Insight: God’s gift of salvation is available equally to all who confess their sins and accept Jesus as the Lord of their life. Our present, past, and the amount of sin in our lives will not change that truth or add additional requirements for those most in need of God’s grace.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for making your grace and gift of salvation equally available for all. Help me to remember that our good can’t get us in and our bad can’t keep us out, and to share your love and encouragement with those I meet today. In Jesus name, Amen.
