We are just starting the long trek of memorizing Romans 8. I know God has some special things to reveal to us as we meditate on these words by saying them over and over and over.
‘Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus because, through Christ Jesus, the law of the Spirit of Life set me free from the law of sin and death.”
And this week we add the next verse,
“For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering.”
For God so loved the world…..
The law was never going to make us righteous. It just pointed out how unrighteous we are. How much we need a Savior.
There is a righteousness and a holiness and a justice part of God that demanded payment for our sins. But we were never going to be able to pay that debt because of our rebellion and sin.
So God sent Jesus to die for us.
And God adopted us as his children.
For God so loved us.
Thank you, Abba Father.
