Promises Broken?

Has anyone ever promised you something but then they forgot?

A couple promises to love each to death do them part. 

A friend promises to never tell your secret to anyone. 

You promise to God if he will help you this one time you will never do wrong again. 

But the couple divorces after one of them finds another they love more. 

Promise broken. 

The friend tells someone else your secret. 

Promise broken. 

God helps you this time but you find yourself right back in the same situation in a few months. 

Promise broken. 

But guess what there is only ONE person who will NEVER break HIS PROMISE to you.  Do you know whom I’m talking about??

Peter replied, “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.  The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.” 

Acts 2:38-39 | NIV

Peter tells us about the PROMISE Jesus has given us – forgiveness of our sins if we repent. 

Jesus will not stop loving us. Jesus will not tell anyone else. Jesus will always be there for us. 

In this world, there are PROMISES broken every day. We live in a world full of lies, hate, destruction and sin. 

But Jesus came to die for our sins. We can be baptized and forgiven. 

And that’s a PROMISE that will NEVER be broken.
