The Favored Child

Passage: Acts 3:12-19, 1 John 3:1-7, Luke 24:36b-48

Seeing is believing…but believing is also seeing. In Acts, Peter admonishes the crowd for being amazed at the miraculous healing performed in Christ’s name. The Epistle speaks of the hope that comes from being in Christ and being known by God, even as Christ is known. The Gospel takes us again to the upper room, to see and believe and to have hope in the face of death. For God is greater than death, bringing forgiveness of sins and newness of life to those who believe.
