Verse of the Day

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

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

The Old Testament — the Tanakh — looks forward to a new time when law is not the basis of righteousness. The Law and Prophets testify to this time. This righteousness comes from God, which God gave us based on the sacrificial work of Jesus, who liberated us from law and brought us God’s grace. The real issue for us is genuine trust — many today confuse believing with simply thinking something in our heads. However, the Bible defines belief as something that involves our heart’s faith in Jesus, demonstrated by our obedient behavior to the Lord Jesus’ example and teachings (Matthew 7:13-27). 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, future, and salvation to Jesus Christ and not law-keeping. As the apostle Paul said:

God made [Christ Jesus] who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21).



My Prayer…

Precious Father, thank you so much for providing me with a Savior in Jesus. Thank you for declaring me righteous through his sacrifice on the cross and my faith in him. Please help me as I entrust my life and salvation to Jesus so that I can exemplify his life and character by how I live. In Jesus’ holy name, I pray. Amen.
