The promise to all those far off

April 7, 2015 10:59 am

“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ, for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is made to you and to your children and to all those far off, whomever the Lord our God will call.” (ACTS 2: 38-39)

Probably “those far off” have no idea about any promise made to them. But we should always remember that the promise is “forgiveness of our sins,” and when we meet “those far off,” people in great need, we will know how to ask and to Whom we should pray. Nobody is rejected, nobody is without promise, and nobody is forgotten. “In the name of Jesus Christ,” we “will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit,” Who will help us to pray for “all those far off”  in every situation.

“This is the day the LORD has made; let us be glad and rejoice in it.” (Gospel Acclamation)
