Hey, that's us

When they heard these things they fell silent. And they glorified God, saying, "Then to the Gentiles also God has granted repentance that leads to life."
-Acts 11:18

This is a truly thrilling point in Scripture: it's where we finally come in! (By we I mean probably every Christian who reads this blog, because I have very few friends of Jewish background.) Don't let this just slip by. Remember that the whole Bible up until this verse has revolved around just one nation, and God's dealings with them. Now God reveals the bigger plan. Incredibly, His glorious Gospel, the "repentance that leads to life," is actually for everyone!

Even for me, the German-Welsh-Danish altogether-barbarian sinner from the frigid northlands. :)

  1. Truly something to contemplate! Understanding the depths God's grace in this act is.... impossible!
