WILL YOU TAKE A 2017 BIBLE STUDY CHALLENGE?
It is easy to get caught up in making New Year resolutions, after all, everyone else is making them. Who wants to be left out? NOT ME!
But if you are anything like me you make resolutions for the upcoming year only to get maybe half way through the year and stop! Can I get a witness! I honestly have stopped making them. Who wants to set themselves up for failure anyway? I try to be disciplined, I really do, but I fail more often than not.
WHAT IS THE IMPORTANCE OF KNOWING THE LAW OF GOD?
DAY-1| WEEK-1| LESSON 11
After spending much time teaching, by the works of the Law no man will be justified, Paul stresses that God is the justifier of those who have placed their gift of faith in His Son Jesus Christ. Now a question arises, ” Do we then nullify the Law through faith?” Paul answers that question with a resounding, “May it never be! A thousand times no! On the contrary, we establish the Law.”
DID YOU KNOW GOD IS THE ONE WHO JUSTIFIES?
Wednesday we looked at the justification and redemption that comes through Jesus. We learned that these were free gifts of grace which God sent through His son. Those who believe in the work of Christ and place their God-given gift of faith in Him receive these marvelous grace gifts!
DID YOU KNOW GOD HAS A FREE GIFT?
” But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; ” Romans 3:21-24
DID YOU KNOW “BUT” IS A GRACE WORD?
Paul sums up the first three and a half chapters of Romans in Romans 3:19-20.
“Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth many be closed and all the world may become accountable to God; because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.”
