22 Mar Call On The Name
“And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” – Acts 2:21
Holy Week is an intentional time to reflect upon and celebrate in God’s faithfulness to His promise—that He will bring full and final redemption to His people. We look forward to Good Friday where our Savior bears the curse of our sin and we anticipate with hope Easter Sunday where our Savior is victorious over that curse. What the church needs is not more men and women that are strong and put together; the church needs more men and women that desperately call upon the name of Christ—not just once but daily—for the Gospel to transform, renew and restore them fully into the image of Christ. The Gospel is the power of God unto salvation, which means that all people need the Gospels power to transform.
For the sake of reflection, will you meditate upon these two questions today:
- Who in your life is needing to hear the good news of the Gospel? Will you commit to praying for that person this week?
- Would you pray that God would create a desperate dependence for His Gospel to transform and renew you?
