Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 09/30/12

This week’s scripture is from Romans:

“…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus…”     (Romans 3:23-24)

How great is God’s grace toward us; He forgives us our sins, our trespasses, our short-comings, our failures, our disobedience. Try as we do, who can remain sinless before the Lord? We cannot stop every idle or harsh word, hold back every errant thought, withdraw every careless action, refrain from every rebellious act, without Him. We fail at perfection; we fail at righteousness; we fail at holiness, but the One who is holy, the One who is righteous, the One who is perfect extends His grace to us that we might have forgiveness, that we might have redemption in His sacrifice for us — freely given — through His grace. Praise God for His surpassing love and grace in Christ Jesus.

May God Almighty bless you and be gracious unto you through our Lord Jesus Christ.
