“Now to the one who works, wages are not credited as a gift but as an obligation. However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness.” Romans 4:4-5.
Verses chosen from today’s Bible reading; 2 Chronicles 6-7, Psalm 135, and Romans 4.
Salvation is a GIFT. I cannot earn it at any level.
If I am earning something, then I have a part in the result. Salvation omits me from the equation.
I am saved from the consequences of my sins when I transfer my solution trust from wherever I’ve located it, to Him.
When I have made the trust transfer, my behavior will change, BUT that behavioral change is NOT a prerequisite for my being saved from sins’ consequences.
“Lord, I thank You for Romans. I thank You for “Godsights” that come through reading Your Word. I need my brain to be filled with Your Thoughts. Help me to live as You want me to live. Thanks for taking care of my sin problem. I trust You, Father.”
Salvation is a gift. Take it!
