New Life in Jesus

The Sadducees were a Jewish religious group. In our Bible Reading today, they were upset with the apostles. Why? Because the apostles were teaching that people could have new life in Jesus and live forever. The Sadducees did not believe that people could live again after they died.
The apostles were arrested and put in jail. But during the night an angel opened the jail doors. The angel told the apostles, “Go and stand in the Temple area. Tell the people everything about this new life” (verse 20).
When we became Christians, God gave us a new life in Jesus. Romans 3:23-24 tells us, “All have sinned and are not good enough to share God’s divine greatness. They are made right with God…by being made free from sin through Jesus Christ.”
As Christians, we have a job to do. Our job is to tell other people about our new life in Jesus. Then they can have new life, too!
