As the post–Christmas sales finish up, the Easter eggs will start to appear and it’s all too easy to forget the reason for either season: Jesus. He was and is our Passover Lamb and the First Fruits of those who are raised from the dead. (1 Corinthians 15:20)
Jesus’ cousin, John the Baptiser, said it so well at the river Jordan:
’Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.‘ John 1:29 NKJV
Truly this is the Good News we are to share to the nation every day until He returns.
Therefore on behalf of our faithful UCB Australia ministry team, I am so very pleased to present you with this edition of our popular daily devotional. This issue celebrates 20 years The Word for Today in Australia.
Together we (you, UCB and Bob and Debby Gass) have seen and heard how through it thousands of Aussies are being strengthened, comforted and inspired to live out their faith daily in practical ways—declaring His goodness and faithfulness in every situation.
This year we are working on a number of very exciting new initiatives. We want to increase the reach of this devotional by introducing it to many more churches and communities. We are also committed to switching on 50 new Vision radio stations, launching a brand new online radio stream for young people and increasing the distribution of our youth devotional, Vision180, to reach the next generation.
We have also partnered with well–known Australian evangelist Bill Newman to make an exciting Gospel tract ‘The Complete Sacrifice’ available to you to share with others, available from our resource store; www.visionstore.org.au
