Justified by Grace
“Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for ‘The righteous shall live by faith’.” Galatians 3:11 (ESV)
Biblical faith is so simple that some people complicate Christ’s grace with religion in order to remain in control. If we walk by sight, seeing our own compliance to works, than we selfishly deny Christ’s grace by not exercising faith in God’s ability to save us from our sin. When we walk by faith, we may fall, but by His grace we are encouraged to keep walking forward trusting in Christ’s control of our lives not ours.
Let’s pray today for those who find it hard to trust in Christ’s grace and relinquish control to Him.
