Day 176, Morning
Today’s morning meditation is available below in audio and script formats. The audio version is also available for free download on the player.
But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished—he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
—Romans 3 (NT)
As your day begins, spend a few moments in silence and stillness.
Read the passage again. Notice how God might be speaking to you through the words. Dwell on a word or phrase that jumps out, and let your heart respond to God in meditation.
