Living by faith!
Scripture reading for August 16th: Galatians 2, Psalm 14, Proverbs 10
Key Scriptures: Galatians 2:19-21 “For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness were through the law, then Christ died for no purpose.”
Paul carefully explained to the Galatian believers that the law could only reveal sin and our separation from God. But through identification with Christ Jesus in His death and resurrection, real life comes through Christ living in us . This life is a gift of God coming through faith in Jesus Christ, not by man’s effort of trying to keep the law. If we could do it ourselves, Christ Jesus died in vain!
Faith confession: I identify with Christ Jesus in His crucifixion and His resurrection from the dead. I receive by grace His indwelling presence and righteousness. Thank You Jesus, I am free and truly live!
Proverbs 10:24-25 “What the wicked dreads will come upon him; but the desire of the righteous will be granted. When the tempest passes, the wicked is no more, but the righteous is established forever.”
