November 19; Faith

Galatians 1:1-4:7

Does reading Paul’s letter to the Galatians thrill you as much as it does me? Salvation comes from placing my faith in Jesus.

I can’t be good enough, generous enough, even religious enough to earn what Jesus freely gives to those who come to Him. He bought the right to forgive all who believe. That in itself thrills my soul.

Receiving forgiveness is the same for you as it is for me, as it is for that murderer on death row or that sweet little old lady down the street. We all must be born again by placing our faith in Jesus, the One who loves us and gave Himself for us.

Consider Abraham; “He believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” Understand, then that those who believe are children of Abraham. (3:6-7)

Abraham believed. Do you?

But the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised (righteousness), being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe. (verse 22)

Isn’t that thrilling? Believe, and receive. Then this:

So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir. (4:7)

Oh, dear one, I pray that you have placed your faith in Jesus. There is no joy greater than having your sins forgiven, no blessing better than being a child of God, nothing more thrilling than knowing you are going to heaven.

I am praying for you.

    The verses that encouraged my walk today are Galations 3:2-5.
    Salvation comes by placing my faith in Jesus.
    Keeping the free gift of Salvation is not dependent on trying to keep the Jewish law.
    I thank God that the power that saved us is the power that keeps us.
    Living according to the commands of God is a response of obedience out of Love for God.
    If I love Him, I will obey Him.
    If I love Him, I will hunger and thirst for righteousness and more of the Word.

    It is fun to study the Word together with others that grow by reading this blog.

      Thank you for your thoughtful response. And may we all love God the way He deserves to be loved, obey Him the way He deserves to be obeyed, and spend time in His precious Word where we will be filled. How can we help but love Him when He loved us so, and gave Himself for us? God bless you today, and make you a blessing.
