Romans 3:21-22

  1. Romans 3:21-22

    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

    The Old Testament looks forward to a new time, a time when law
    is not the basis of righteousness. The Law and Prophets testify to
    this time. This righteousness comes from God and is built on the
    sacrificial work of Jesus who liberates us from law and brings us
    God's grace. The real issue for us is trust -- many today confuse
    believing with simply thinking something in one's head, while the
    Bible sees belief as something that involves our heart and changes
    our behavior. 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, our future,
    and our salvation to Jesus Christ and not to law-keeping.
  2. A wise man once said that faith is believing a tight rope walker could walk across that rope with a basket on his head. Trust is when you get in that basket and relax during the ride.:)
  3. Hmmmm.... Very wise indeed.
