Proclaimed in His Name

As I was driving home today, I saw a church that had the word COFFEE on their sign outside.

Underneath COFFEE, it read, “Christ Offers Forgiveness For Everyone Everywhere.”

I had not seen this before.

Sometimes, little illustrations can lead to very significant conversations.

Thousands upon thousands of people drink coffee every day, many of them while in the company of others—at work, school or in a restaurant.

How simple it would be to just relay those six very important words linked to the letters in “coffee” to someone who does not know about Jesus and what He has done for all of us.

I know that it is something I want to remember as a way to share about God’s plan of salvation.

After Jesus rose from the dead, He appeared to His disciples.

In part of one account, we find these words:

Then He said to them, “These are My words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.”  Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures,  and said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead,  and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in His name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.  You are witnesses of these things.  And behold, I am sending the promise of My Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.”

—Luke 24:44-49

 

to all nations
