VERSE:
... for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and
are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came
by Christ Jesus.
-- Romans 3:23-24

THOUGHT:
No matter how hard we try, how good we are, and how much we
work, we can never measure up to the only standard that matters --
the glory of Almighty God. Thankfully, God doesn't require us to
pretend to be what we are not -- perfect, spotless, and holy.
Instead, God makes us to be these (cf. Colossians 1:21-23) by
grace, through the gift of his Son who purchased our pardon and
gave us his righteousness (2 Corinthians 5:21). Praise God. Praise
our Savior, Christ Jesus. Now let's live with Jesus as our Lord;
not to earn or secure our salvation, but to thank him for what he
has so freely given us!
PRAYER:
Most precious and holy Father, all I can say to your marvelous
grace is thank you! Please know that while these words are woefully
inadequate, they are genuine. Dear Father, I look forward to
showing you through the rest of my life how much I appreciate all
that you have done for me. In Jesus' glorious name, I pray. Amen.
