Scripture Verse Of The Week

i corinthians 15

Just as I am, I come before You Lord, transform me to the person you created me to be.

1 Corinthians 15 Verse 58: “Therefore, my dear brothers {and sisters} be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lord’s work, knowing that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”

There is a well known verse in Habakkuk 2 verse 4:” But the righteous one will live by faith”.

In some translation it says the ‘Just” shall live by faith.

Just, Righteous, Well it is not talking about a super person living their faith. It is an everyday person that believes God

Justification comes through repentance, and justification takes away the guilt and so makes way for inner peace. Such is the Awesomeness of Goodwill God has to us, that immediately upon the cancellation of the obstacle {sin things God’s calls wrong-doing} relationship is restored.

God does something bigger than the justice courts in the world, where if we commit a crime, we need to be punished for the crime and make restitution for it. Well the same reasoning is with God, we were all separated from Him because of sin {wrong-doings}, we need to be punished, but God Himself paid the penalty for us with His Son Christ Jesus dying on the Cross in our place.

Through genuine repentance, for our wrong-doings and acceptance of The Price that Christ Jesus paid for us we are justified. Justification brings us back to relationship with Our Creator God.

For God to justify us, he makes us righteous in His sight.

The person who truly seek after God and has a genuine sorry {repentance} before God, is made righteous in God’s eyes

We can’t live the way we used to live anymore, there is a better way for us to live. “The Just {Righteous in God’s eyes} shall live by Faith in him

But we remain a sinner, a sinner saved by grace, that now keeps short accounts with God, and Live out the plans He has for our lives Jeremiah 29 verse 11;

“’For I know the plans I have for you’— this is the Lord’s declaration —’plans for your welfare, not for disaster to give you a future and a hope.”

The Just shall live by Faith in the plans and purposes, Our Lord and Our Friend has for our lives.

God Bless.
