Today, Saturday December 26 - Romans 1:17 "For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith." The Living Translation says it this way: "This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.” In verse 16,Paul said he was not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ because only in it could we find a right standing with a Holy God! The "righteousness of God" also means "justified". Justification means we are able to have a "right standing with God." In other words, we can stand before a Holy God without any guilt whatsoever!" We are not sinners because we steal, cheat, lie, murder or commit adultery. We are sinners because we are born sinners, and we stay sinners, because we will not by faith believe and receive the only remedy for our sin! We must believe, have faith, in the Gospel! The Gospel is the Good News of the love of God, made manifest in His Son Jesus Christ, Who lived a perfect sinless life, died in our place for our sins, was buried and then on the third day, He rose again from the death! Paul says our faith, our trust, our belief in this "Gospel" is what transforms our life and gives us a "right standing" before God. Today, do you know that you are forgiven and have this "right standing" before God? If not, why not, right now, receive Jesus into your heart and life by asking Him to forgive you of your sins and invite Him to come into your life!
