Is summer coming back? It sure looks that way out here ;o) I hope everyone had a safe and happy week!
Ok, on to our reading and keeping the same pace… Do you walk by Faith? Or by Sight?
Read Romans 1:1-17
Put your focus on verse 17 and then look at your life… it is impossible to get to heaven by our works, a man once said that trying to earn our way into heaven was like trying to climb a rope of sand to the moon. We get to heaven by faith! So tell me are you living by faith today?
Study group questions…
1/ what is God’s power to save?
2/ why is it God’s power to save?
Foot notes on – Romans 1:17
The righteousness of God most likely means “righteousness from God.” It reflects a right standing before God that is given to people by God (see Phil. 3:9). The phrase likely has this meaning in Romans: 3:21–22 and 2 Cor. 5:21 as well (see notes on those verses). However, the expression probably also refers to God’s righteous moral character. This is seen in his holiness and justice. It is also seen in the way that his act of saving sinners through Christ’s death meets the just demand of his holy nature. From faith for faith probably means that right standing with God is by faith from start to finish. Shall live by faith. People receive the gift of salvation by faith. It is also by faith that they live each day. Habakkuk 2:4 “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith.
