Les Miserablés begins with paroled convict Jean Valjean stealing a priest’s silver. He’s caught, and he expects to be returned to the mines. But the priest shocks everyone when he claims he’d given the silver to Valjean. After the police leave, he turns to the thief, “You belong no longer to evil, but to good.”

Such extravagant love points to the love that flowed from the fountain from which all grace comes. On the Day of Pentecost, Peter told his audience that less than two months before, in that very city, they had crucified Jesus. The crowd was crushed and asked what they must do. Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins” (Acts 2:38). Jesus had endured the punishment they deserved. Now their penalty would be forgiven if they put their faith in Him.

Oh, the irony of grace! The people could only be forgiven because of Christ’s death—a death they were responsible for. How gracious and powerful is God! He has used humanity’s greatest sin to accomplish our salvation! If God has already done this with the sin of crucifying Jesus, we may assume there’s nothing He can’t turn into something good. Trust the One who “in all things . . . works for the good of those who love him” (Romans 8:28).

Go to another dealer incurred unlike what I total today's reading. This is grace. Les Miserables begins with paroled convict John Bell, John stealing a priest silver he's caught. We expect to be returned to the mines. But the priest shocks everyone when he claims he given the silver to Bell, John. After the police leave. He turns to the thief you belong no longer to evil but too good. Such extravagant love points to the love that flowed from the fountain from which all grace comes on the day of Pentecost, Peter told his audience that less than two months before in that very city they had crucified Jesus. The crowd was crushed and asked what they must do. Peter replied next to 38 repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.

Jesus had endured the punishment they deserved. Now, their penalty would be forgiven if they put their faith in him all of the irony of grace, the people could only be forgiven because of Christ's death by death. They were responsible for how gracious and powerful as God he's used humanity's greatest sin to accomplish our salvation.

If God has already done this with the sin of crucifying Jesus. We may assume there's nothing he can't turn into something good. Trust the one who in all things works for the good of those who love today Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading from acts chapter 2 verses 32 through 41 God has raised this Jesus to life and we are all witnesses of it exalted to the right hand of God. He has received from the father, the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear. For David did not ascend to heaven, and yet he said the Lord said to my Lord, sit at my right hand to I make your enemies a footstool for your feet. Therefore let all Israel be assured of this God has made this Jesus whom you crucified, both the Lord and Messiah. When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, brothers, what shall we do Peter replied, repent to be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off for all whom the Lord our God will call with many other words he warned them and he pleaded with them, save yourselves from this corrupt generation.

Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about 3000 were added to their number that day.

Let's pray dear father, thank you for your extravagant love that rescued us from our sin. Please take all our fears and help us to trust you.

In Jesus name we pray. Amen. Today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
