The obedience of faith!
Scripture reading for June 12th: Proverbs 19-21, Psalm 40, Romans 16
Key Scriptures: Romans 16:25-27 “Now to Him Who is able to strengthen you according to my Gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages but has now been disclosed and through the prophetic writing has been made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith–to the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen.
Paul closed out his letter to the Roman believers with a benediction blessing. All glory goes to Jesus Christ and God His Father for their wisdom and revelation of God’s great plan of salvation. This plan was kept secret for long ages but was revealed by the prophets and their writings and now through the preaching of Jesus Christ. Jesus preached God’s eternal Word and through that Gospel of repentance He brings faith to all nations of men enabling them to obey God and become His children. To God be glory through Jesus Christ!
Psalm 40:3 “He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.”
Faith confession and prayer: Lord Jesus, I give all glory to You and my heavenly Father for the Gospel I received by the preaching of God’s eternal Word, Jesus Christ. Anoint me with the Holy Spirit today and with boldness to declare the Gospel to all You put in my path. You are my precious Treasure!
Proverbs 21:20-21 “Precious treasure and oil are in a wise man’s dwelling, but a foolish man devours it. Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness, and honor.”
