Today's Verse : Galatians 3:10-11


March 10, 2012

All who rely on observing the law are under a curse, for it is
written: "Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything
written in the Book of the Law." Clearly no one is justified before
God by the law, because, "The righteous will live by faith."
-- Galatians 3:10-11

Thankfully, God provided us the Sacrifice that makes us
righteous and pays for our sins, because none of us keeps God's Law
perfectly. In his boundless grace, God sent Jesus to do what we
cannot do: live a perfect life and offer himself as the perfect
sacrifice for our sins. We don't have to live under law trying to
earn our perfection and God's acceptance. Instead, we live "by
faith," trusting that God will look at us through Christ's
perfection and not our imperfection, judge us based on Jesus'
holiness and not our transgressions, and view us through the Son's
righteousness and not our unrighteousness. In this way, we fulfill
the righteousness requirements of the Law, without having to be
bound to the "curse of the law."

Almighty and Most Holy God, thank you for your plan of grace
that has brought me back from sin and death, and given me a way to
live victoriously for you. Thank you, dear Father, for Jesus and
his awesome and holy life, and his generous and loving sacrifice
for my sins. May the words I say, and the way I live, show that
your grace has captured my heart and that true faith in Jesus has
changed my life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
