Romans 3:22 “We are made right with God by placing our faith in Christ Jesus. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.” (NLT)
Praise God – Because I believe in Jesus Christ and trust in the finished work of His blood sacrifice, I am made right before God. No matter how I’ve lived before, I am now in right standing with God. He sees me in Jesus covered by the blood He shed for me – and for all.
However, only those who believe in this finished work can stand in that righteousness. The act was done for all, but free choice on our part either brings us into this privileged position or prevents us from walking in it.
The price has been paid. Will I accept it or not? My choice – blessings and favor or the position of an outcast?
Thank you, Father, that you have given me the faith to believe. You have given this measure of faith to all people, but I still have the power of choice to accept Jesus or not. Show me how to pray for those who are still blinded to your wonderful gift of freedom in Christ.
Set the captives free, Father. Show me my part in your plan of redemption. May you be honored in my life today and may others see your glory!
Love you, Your Child
