Good from Bad (5)

Joseph, Stephen and Paul faced bad times, and Jesus faced bad times, too. People did bad things to Jesus throughout His ministry. But God made good things happen. People were healed and raised from the dead. Many people believed that Jesus truly was God’s Son.
Finally, the Jews arrested Jesus. They beat Him, made fun of Him, told lies about Him and spit on Him. Then these people killed Jesus. How could God make something good happen from this bad thing? Three days after Jesus died, He arose. Because of His death and resurrection, we can have salvation and the promise of eternal life.
Our Bible verses today tell us that we “have been made right with God by the blood sacrifice of Christ” (verse 9). Verse 10 says that “while we were God’s enemies, he made friends with us through his Son’s death.” We can become friends with God!
God is an expert at bringing good out of bad. He will be with you and bless you today!
