Perfect mercy and grace

But when the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy and began to contradict what was spoken by Paul, reviling him. And Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly, saying, “It was necessary that the word of God be spoken first to you. Since you thrust it aside and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we are turning to the Gentiles. For so the Lord has commanded us, saying, “‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’” (Acts 13:45-47 ESV)

Як юдеї ж побачили натовп, то наповнились заздрощів, і стали перечити мові Павла та богозневажати. Тоді Павло та Варнава мужньо промовили: До вас перших потрібно було говорить Слово Боже; та коли ви його відкидаєте, а себе вважаєте за недостойних вічного життя, то ось до поган ми звертаємось. Бо так заповів нам Господь: Я світлом поставив Тебе для поган, щоб спасінням Ти був аж до краю землі! (Дії 13:45-47 Ukrainian)

O LORD – I trust in your perfect mercy and grace on this new day and always.Thank you kind Father for the air we breath, the food we eat, the water we drink and the spiritual food you provide each day as we humble ourselves before your glorious Son who brought the greatest gift of love this world has ever known or will know. Help all parents who love Christ in their daily struggles to raise their children to love you and love others. Bless all workers in the great harvest field of the world who have left homes, families and loved ones to take the gospel message to the lost and dying of this world. Give leaders of the sending churches the same boldness in providing encouragement and support. We pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
