Today's Verse : Romans 3:21-22


March 21, 2012

But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made
known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This
righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all
who believe.
-- Romans 3:21-22

The Old Testament looks forward to a new time, a time when law
is not the basis of righteousness. The Law and Prophets testify to
this time. This righteousness comes from God and is built on the
sacrificial work of Jesus who liberates us from law and brings us
God's grace. The real issue for us is trust -- many today confuse
believing with simply thinking something in one's head, while the
Bible sees belief as something that involves our heart and changes
our behavior. So what is the basis on which you are building your
life today? What is the measure of your righteousness? On what is
your security tied? Thank God we can trust our life, our future,
and our salvation to Jesus Christ and not to law-keeping.

Precious Father, thank you so much for providing me with a
Savior in Jesus. Thank you for declaring me righteous through the
sacrifice of your Son. Please help me as I entrust my life and
salvation to Jesus so that his life and character can be
exemplified in the way that I live. In Jesus' holy name I pray.
