"The God of our Fathers raised up Jesus whom you murdered by hanging on a tree. Him God has exalted to His right hand to be Prince and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins."
"Honey, did you pick up the cake for the party?" " What party? "He said. I said, " the party we are having tonight remember for your brother? "'Oh, no, I forgot all about it." "Well, go now before they close. It's paid for, just give them your name."Ok,' he said. " I'll go now."
When Rudy gets to the Bakery, they didn't know his name, and they didn't have a cake for him. He came home empty handed. "Why didn't they give you the cake ! "I said." There wasn't any cake for us, they knew nothing about it." "I said," I paid for it, but I didn't give you the receipt, I figured our name would be enough. It wasn't.
Do you ever feel like something is missing in your life? Everyone else got the message about how to be happy, but your e-mail about that got lost in spam! Grace across the street, boy, she really has it all together! Not me, I guess when God gave out togetherness I was looking in the opposite direction.
When Jesus sat down, at the "right hand" of the Father, He had finished the work that God, the Father had given Him. He had paid the price. It was completed, what was needed for your life and mine. The reason some of us understand this, is because we know the name of Jesus, and our faith in His name has given us everything we need for life. His name will get you in the door, it will get you the cake every time because the price has been paid, and you have the right name. Give Him the Praise!
