Good afternoon church family
Today we continue our Lenten journey, in all seasons we should meditate on the scriptures:
“But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.” Romans 3:21-26 NIV
Here are a couple of questions to guide you.
- What are some of the things God is asking of you in this passage
- What reassurances does God provide for you in this passage
- What is something new you have learnt about the character of God from this passage.
- How does all you have read make you feel and how can you apply it in your life.
