Daily Prayer for November 13th, 2017

Dear God,

You made a way when there was no way to have a relationship with You. The everlasting covenant of grace was completely fulfilled; through your Son, Christ’s blood, on behalf of humankind. The conditions of this redemption and salvation were perfect satisfaction to your law and justice. Perfect righteousness, which no sinner could produce even by their best efforts. Thank you for saving me/us from the fowlers snare! In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Romans 3:20-31 NIV

20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law, we become conscious of our sin.

Righteousness Through Faith

21¬†But now apart from the law the righteousness of God¬†has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify.¬†22¬†This righteousness is given through faith¬†in¬†Jesus Christ¬†to all who believe.¬†There is no difference between Jew and Gentile,¬†23¬†for all have sinned¬†and fall short of the glory of God,¬†24¬†and all are justified¬†freely by his grace¬†through the redemption¬†that came by Christ Jesus.¬†25¬†God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood‚ÄĒto be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished‚ÄĒ¬†26¬†he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.

27 Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. Because of what law? The law that requires works? No, because of the law that requires faith. 28 For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart from the works of the law. 29 Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too, 30 since there is only one God, who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through that same faith.31 Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law.
