” Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyful look forward to sharing God’s glory.
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. ” – Romans 5: 1 – 8.
Our weekly delight ( joy & pleasure ) in READING, is about the Good News of getting things right as followers. The Gospel is that all we really need is to trust God and trust the faith that we claim – I don’t want it to be oversimplified, but some people are terrified of being “ justified “, because they think they might be modified and their lives nullified. Well you will be gratified and I hope mollified to know that, when we are justified, we are not nullified but rather dignified and classified and identified with the one who was crucified, and glorified by God. Our lives are purified and fortified by the one who exemplified God’s love. And though we are mystified at how we can be justified by faith to the one who was dissatisfied, we are edified, our faith is intensified and revivified. Through our faith we are certified, justified and made a ” bona-fide ” child of God.
This justifying faith and trust breeds confidence in our future; because we believe even in suffering that God holds the future through Jesus Christ, our Father. Let us applied ourselves in Bible reading, slowly and repeatedly – This is life!!!
