Day 15 Romans 2
Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? Romans 2:4 ESV
Ultimately you can know and teach the law which is well and fine (v. 21). But the question is do you live by it. God doesn’t care if you are uncircumcised if your heart is not in the right place (v.27).
Although the Gentiles maybe uncircumcised of they have a heart that is for God that is all that matters . Our hearts is what will be examined by Christ Jesus on judgement day (v.16).
Day 16 Romans 3
Since God is one—who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith. Romans 3:30 ESV
Dear Heavenly Father, God of all things. Please help me to recognize sin. Most of all, help me to chose righteousness in the face of sin. I know through my faith in Christ Jesus I can overcome all things. Please help me to be humble and know that all good things are from you. Every good thing in my life is a gift of your grace. I can never thank you enough Father. You are truly an awesome God. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
Day 17 Romans 4
He didn’t tiptoe around God’s promise asking cautiously skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God, sure that God would make good on what he had said. That’s why it is said, “Abraham was declared fit before God by trusting God to set him right.” But it’s not just Abraham; it’s also us! The same thing gets said about us when we embrace and believe the One who brought Jesus to life when the conditions were equally hopeless. The sacrificed Jesus made us fit for God, set us right with God. Romans 4:19-25 MSG
ApplicationOur faith is like that first domino in a cascading stack. Once you knock the first one down the rest also begin to fall down.
Domino effect. When our faith in Christ is activated it’s like telling God your ready for him to go to work in your life.
Its that moment when you begin to acknowledge him, surrender to him, humble yourself before him, and really seek to understand who he is so that you can better understand who you are.
Day 18 Romans 5
For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous. Romans 5:19 ESV
ObservationYou were saved not because of your obedience. But because of Christ obedience and His blood sacrifice. Despite the separation that was caused by the initial sin of Adam, and all the following sin that took place. And will take place.
God loves us so much that he said you know what despite you obvious faults I want you back. I want us to be close again. So if you will believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah and Anointed One.
I will not only grant you the gift of grace for your shortcomings. But I will give you eternal life.
Girl if that doesn’t make you want to get up every morning and thank God and sing His praise then I honestly don’t know what will. *I have chills*
Day 19 Romans 6
For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. Romans 6:10 ESV
You either serve sin or serve God. If you serve sin, well you know that can only lead to death. But if you serve God and he will santify you.
Sanctification is consecration, purification, or the sanctification of heart and life. Hagiasmos is the Greek word for sanctification.
Day 20 Romans 7
Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin. Romans 7:25 ESV
You quite literally are not alone. You think your the only one struggling to do the right thing. Struggling to live according to the word which know is right.
Your fighting a battle that we have been fighting since Adam and Eve. Our mind is constantly at war with our flesh.
You just gotta remember that the blood of Jesus Christ set you free. The gift of God’s grace reigns. When your feeling weak lean on the Holy Spirit and put your trust in the Lord.
Day 21 Romans 8:1-17
For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. Romans 8:6 ESV
Dear Heavenly Father, help my mind to be focused on you. To hear your words and not my own. To follow your wisdom and not my own. To be constantly pursuing you in prayer, bible study, and worship. Most of all, help me to remember this life is about glorifying your name and not my own. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
