SEPT 18 -ROMANS 4:23-25

9/18            Romans 4:23-25 

And when God counted him as righteous, it wasn’t just for Abraham’s benefit. It was recorded 24 for our benefit, too, assuring us that God will also count us as righteous if we believe in him, the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. 

25 He was handed over to die because of our sins, and he was raised to life to make us right with God.


We become okay with God through the work of Jesus Christ appropriated by us through faith.  This faith is belief that Jesus is Lord and that He died on the Cross for us and was raised by the power of God.  This belief can be as simple as a child’s belief and as complex as 50 years of belief by an adult.  They are the same thing because Jesus is the reason our belief works.  Christ is all and in all.  He is Lord of life.
