JUNE 23 – ALREADY

06/23          Romans 4:8

8 Yes, what joy for those whose record the LORD has cleared of sin.”  9Now, is this blessing only for the Jews, or is it also for uncircumcised Gentiles? Well, we have been saying that Abraham was counted as righteous by God because of his faith. 10 But how did this happen? Was he counted as righteous only after he was circumcised, or was it before he was circumcised? Clearly, God accepted Abraham before he was circumcised! 11 Circumcision was a sign that Abraham already had faith and that God had already accepted him and declared him to be righteous—even before he was circumcised. So Abraham is the spiritual father of those who have faith but have not been circumcised. They are counted as righteous because of their faith. 

ALREADY

We look to Jesus for our salvation.  He forgives us, He cleans us up and presents us to the Father bathed in His righteousness.  All we do is believe.  I believe the Lord and He has already done everything I need to be in a right relationship with our Father God.  Father, Son and Holy Spirit breathe on me and make me the kind of person that you can use.  The Lord was able to use Abraham because He believed God.  I believe God and have faith that Jesus has saved me.  Praise the Lord.
