Have you ever done a project for school, got it back from your teacher only to find out you forgot to do an important part of the assignment?
It’s easy to get busy working on a project and forget what the objectives and goals were from your teacher.
That’s a lot like how easy it is to forget what makes the gospel so awesome. It’s easy to forget what Jesus did for us. Here’s what Acts 13 says about what Jesus did.
“Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God—something the law of Moses could never do. (Acts 13:38, 39 NLT)
That’s pretty amazing. Through Jesus our sins are forgiven and when we believe in Jesus we are made right with God.
So don’t get too busy in your life, friends and homework that you miss the main point of the gospel. We’ve been made right with God. We can know the living God. That’s great news!
