God is Faithful! April 16, 2020
Greetings in the precious love of Jesus,
Today as we look at Romans 3 we are reminded of the faithfulness of God. This chapter reminds us that "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (verse 23). But the message doesn't stop at that verse--praise God! It goes on to say, "and are justified freely BY HIS GRACE through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus." (v. 24)
Each of us has been made clean because of the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Jesus gave his life freely for you and me so that we might have relationship with the Creator of all things. There is now a new law--the law of faith. As we receive this love from God the wrath of God against sin is no longer against us but we become children of the Living God, fully accepted in His love, fully redeemed and set free from sin.
All the moral requirements of God were met in Christ through his death and resurrection. If everything was completed in Christ, then we can also understand more fully what is written in Philippians 1:6, "being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." God is working in your life and will continue to do so through the beauty of His grace, the wonder of His love, and the joy of His presence in and through us. All things have been made right through Jesus!
Rest today in God's faithfulness in Christ!
