Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer these lines from Christopher J.H. Wright.
“The idea that the difference between the Old and New Testaments is that in the Old salvation is by the law whereas in the New it is by grace, sets up a totally false contrast. In the Old as in the New, it is God who takes the initiative of grace and calls people to faith and obedient response.”
Romans 5:20 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
20 The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more,
Abba, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You. Thank You for the gift of abounding grace. Bless You, for wisdom and guidance for this fallen world. Lord, You are so worthy of our praise and worship. Show us the area of our lives that we are still holding onto. Help us to loosen our grips on the temporary treasures and to submit fully to You for the glorious treasures You have in store for us. In Jesus’ name, amen.
