Made Right and Kept Right by God’s Grace through Faith in Jesus.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Romans 4: 1 Abraham was, humanly speaking, the founder of our Jewish nation. What did he discover about being made right with God? 2 If his good deeds had made him acceptable to God, he would have had something to boast about. But that was not God's way. 3 For the Scriptures tell us, "Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith."
Read - Romans 4
If Abraham was only made right with God via faith then you and I can rest assured that is God’s requirement for us as well. How is your faith?
Lord, thank you for the legacy of faith modeled in the Scriptures for me to imitate.
To be Mended by Christ is to be counted righteous because of our faith in the saving work of Jesus’ life, death, burial and resurrection. It is God’s great promise to give us right standing in His eyes through this faith and to keep us until the return of Christ.
