Where is the Gospel?

How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?

The call to be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect (Matthew 5:48) is an impossible standard to measure up to. If our salvation depends on our being perfect, then no human in the history of the world could enter heaven. That is where the gospel becomes our only hope. Jesus fulfilled the law perfectly by meeting all of its requirements perfectly. Jesus also fulfilled the strict standard he presented in the Sermon on the Mount to love your enemies. Jesus perfectly followed his teaching to love his enemies. Jesus died on the cross to take our sins away—but that leaves us without righteousness. Jesus also lived a sinless life so that he could then give that righteousness to us as our representative.

Continuing on in the New Testament, we are on week 14 which starts on page 99 in the Old Story New devotional.

Pray about it! Ask God to help you forgive those who sin against you and not take revenage on them.
