It is good for you to know God, whom you have really believed, and be strong in the faith. do not be atracted by strange, new ideas. So Your strength comes from God’s grace, not from rules about food, which don’t help those who follow them (Heb. 13:9 NLT).
The law came by Moses, but the law is not the way to be made right with God in this dispensaton. God has shown us a way to be made right with Him without keeping the requirements of the law… We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no mater who we are (v. 21-22 NLT). Everyone born into this world inherited sin, and needs to be made right with God. Every human has fallen short of God’s glorious standard, and all need to be made right with God by His grace, which is a free gif. They need to be made free from sin through Jesus Christ (v. 23-24 NCV). The standards of God cannot be compromised. He sent Jesus into the world to pay the ultmate price for the sins of the whole world. He died in your place to take away your sins.
You are not justfed or made righteous by your works. You did nothing to deserve justfcaton. God made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become God’s righteousness in Him (2 Cor. 5:21 ISV). Being made right with God implies that you can come into God’s presence without any sense of guilt or condemnaton. There is no condemnaton for anyone who is in Christ, and walks according to the dictates of the Spirit. God is just and He is the justfer of the person who has faith in Jesus.
Prayer: Thank you Father for being fair and just; and for making me right in Your sight when I believed in Jesus. Help me to be more sensitve to the leading of Your Spirit, and be strong through the grace God gives to me.
Confession: By the free gif of God’s grace, I am justfed freely through the redempton that is in Christ Jesus. God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the oﬀering for my sin, so that I could be made right with God through Christ. I was made right with God when I believed that Jesus sacrifced His life.
