06/21 Romans 4:4-5
When people work, their wages are not a gift, but something they have earned. 5 But people are counted as righteous, not because of their work, but because of their faith in God who forgives sinners.
Our faith in Jesus is the reason that we can stand in the face of our sin. Jesus forgives us. We accept His forgiveness and seek His guidance to live each day. We do what we do right now. We are becoming more like Jesus.
