When Paul was in prison at Rome, he had opportunity to teach the Jews of that area (Acts 28:17-23). Some were persuaded, others were not (Acts 28:24). Before they left, he applied Isaiah’s prophecy to them, telling them they were hard hearted (Acts 28:25-27). He closed by saying, “Therefore let it be known to you that the salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles, and they will hear it” (Acts 28:28).
Are you among those of whom Paul said, “They will hear it”? Or, are you like the Jews, stubborn and unwilling to hear the “salvation of God”?
The salvation of God is multifaceted. First, Jesus is the Christ of God, the Savior of the world, and there is none other (Acts 4:12; 9:22). Second, men must repent of their sin (Acts 3:19; 17:30). Third, you must be baptized into Christ to have your sins washed away (Acts 19:5; 2:38; cf. 22:16). Have you heard the salvation of God?
