Good morning all,
The word of the day is "gracious.” I have been in a study of Romans lately and love to read about the stuff that Paul has to say to the believers in Rome. He spends the first few chapters talking about all the stuff that is going wrong. But then he gets to the good news. The reason we know that God's news is so good is because by ourselves we have such bad news. This is how we know God is gracious.
But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it — the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…
My prayer this morning is that you learn a little bit more what it means to live a righteous life through faith in the Creator. He is the one who brings that good news as it is explained by at how rebellious gods people are but the cool thing is that Paul reveals and reaffirms to each of the centers in Rome, and us today, that God is gracious and wants to give us his righteousness.
Praying for you,
