The Family Tree

2 Apr

God’s Word: Acts 3:12-26

God’s Message to me: (My interpretation of what God is saying in these verses)

You are a sprout on your family tree. Jesus family tree Will you be a healthy branch of will you be a blight?  The choice is entirely in your hands.  Choices you make will affect your descendants for generations.  Choose carefully what you are leaving in your wake.  You cannot change the past but you can change the future.  Life is brief!  Eternity is forever!  Will you leave behind a path for descendants to follow?  And where will that path lead?

Jesus also had a family tree.  Not all of His ancestors left a perfect path for Him to follow.  He placed no blame but made wise choices for His own life.  By reading the New Testament you will find His life characterized by living for others.  His path led to the sick, the demon possessed, the liars, the cheaters, yes, even those who died.  His life was an offering on behalf of helping others make better choices.  By following His path of living you will find the best of both worlds—the here and now, and the heavenly realm.

Those who believe in Christ Jesus as the path to God are grafted into My forever family tree—adopted as My chosen children.  Jesus purpose in life was to invite whosoever would believe in Him—forgiveness of sin and life eternal.  Before He left earth He passed His mission on to His followers.  No one is to be excluded from hearing His message of forgiveness and acceptance.  You are His messenger.  Your life is your message.  What is the message others are getting from your life?  Are they drawn to Jesus or turned away?  Your choices today affect others tomorrows and even their eternal destiny.

God’s Question: Can I count on you to invite others into My family?

God’s Promise: Faith in Jesus covers a multitude of sins.

My Prayer to God:

I Praise You for Jesus’ example of living for others.

I am Sorry I am way too often selfish.

Thank You for calling me to be Your messenger.

Please Help Me be faithful to Your trust.
