Categories: Don’s Daily Devotions
Sat 12th September Read Acts chapter 3:24-26
V24: So Peter again declares how all OT prophecy spoke of Jesus, and of the days that have now come – the days of salvation, but also of judgement. ( Luke 24:27; John 8 :56-58.)
V25: The Jews to whom he speaks are the descendants of the prophets, part of God’s OT covenant established with their fathers, above all with Abraham – but even in that first giving of the covenant, God spoke not only of Israel as blessed, but of the whole world, through Abraham’s seed. ( Genesis 12:1-3.)
V26: God has now fulfilled this promise, sending His servant/child Jesus ( see v 13.), yes, to the Jew first – but that “first” points, of course to the blessing of the whole world through the One who is indeed the Saviour of all who believe, both Jew and Gentile. All those who believe will be blessed with salvation through Christ. Yes, the address here is first to the Jews, but as this book of Acts continues Acts 1:8 will increasingly be fulfilled.
