On His Account

“David, of course, having completed the work God set out for him, has been in the grave, dust and ashes, a long time now.

But the One God raised up—no dust and ashes for him!

I want you to know, my very dear friends, that it is on account of this resurrected Jesus that the forgiveness of your sins can be promised.

He accomplishes, in those who believe, everything that the Law of Moses could never make good on.

But everyone who believes in this raised-up Jesus is declared good and right and whole before God.

“Don’t take this lightly.

You don’t want the prophet’s sermon to describe you: Watch out, cynics; Look hard—watch your world fall to pieces. I’m doing something right before your eyes That you won’t believe, though it’s staring you in the face.”Act.13.36-41.MSG
