Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 10/12/14

This week’s scripture is from Romans:

Jesus is Risen“I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.”  (Romans 7:15)

Being spiritual or righteous does not come naturally to us. Thank the Lord He is loving and forgiving. We are not required to be sinless, for that would require perfect righteousness, and we are not capable of that. Whereas we might be able to control our actions, none can control every thought or every word.

What is required is repentance and asking forgiveness, for Christ shed His blood and died for us, then rose again that we might receive forgiveness from our Father in heaven. It is only by His love and grace that we are set free, and it is only by the Son of the living God that we are delivered from sin and death.

May the Lord bless you and deliver you.
