Today's Verse : Romans 3:23-24


March 23, 2012

... 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
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!
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.
