WOW! Jesus is GOOD!
Ezra 7-9, Matthew 28
Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
Ezra was a pretty amazing guy and was a great blessing to God’s people, but Jesus is THE MAN! In Jesus we see that God’s plan of salvation was not just for the remnant of Israel, but all people – for all of time. You and I see ourselves in these words of Jesus, for God (in his mercy) loved us and found us and called us to be his own. We are so blessed!
