Today's Verse : Galatians 3:24


March 24, 2012

So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might
be justified by faith.
-- Galatians 3:24
Galatians reminds us again and again that law cannot make us
righteous or save us, not even the Old Testament Law. However, the
Law does one very important thing. It leads us to Christ. We
recognize right and wrong because of the Law. We recognize our
failures, imperfections, sins, transgressions, and weaknesses
because of the Law. Most of all, we recognize our need for a Savior
because of the Law. Praise God for the Law. Praise God a hundred
times more for Jesus!
Thank you, dear Heavenly Father, that the goal of your Law was
to bring me to Jesus. It helps me appreciate his perfection. It
helps me know my sinfulness. Most of all, it helps me realize that
his sacrifice gives me what the Law cannot -- your righteousness.
Father, I do truly believe with all my heart that Jesus came to die
for me and give me life. In Jesus' name, and because of Jesus'
righteousness, I thank you! Amen.
