Acts 5:20 “Go to the Temple and give the people this message of life!”

The angel of the Lord instructed the Apostles to give this message of life. What is this message of life? We find out later in the chapter. It’s teaching the message of Jesus Christ.

Jesus is our liberty, our righteousness, our sanctification, our redeemer, our forgiveness, and our Savior. We’re nothing without Jesus. We’re everything because of Jesus.

If you’re listening to messages involving guilt, shame, condemnation, and obedience to the law for justification, you’re listening to a message of death. We can see this based on 2 Corinthians 3:6 which says, who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

Law-based teaching leads to condemnation and death, but the Spirit whom we received through Christ is life-giving. Ephesians 1:13 says In Him you also who have heard the Word of Truth, the glad tidings (Gospel) of your salvation, and have believed in and adhered to and relied on Him, were stamped with the seal of the long-promised Holy Spirit.

Through the Holy Spirit we’ll get our do’s and don’ts, but none of this will impact our eternity. Our belief in Jesus and what He accomplished for us makes us justified in the sight of God.
