Readings for the Day:

Acts 3:12-19:  After healing a man unable to walk, Peter preaches to the people, describing how God’s promises to Israel have been fulfilled in Jesus.   Through the proclamation of Christ’s death and resurrection, God is offering them forgiveness and restoration in Jesus’ name.

I John 3:1-7:  God has loved us in order to make us children of God.  Though we do not yet know the full details of our future existence, we trust that God will reveal it just as God revealed Jesus to take away our sins.
Luke 24:36-48:  In this account of an appearance after his resurrection, Jesus opens the minds of the disciples to understand him as Messiah.  Jesus convinces them that he has been raised and sends them on a mission to proclaim the message of repentance and forgiveness.
