“Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.” (Romans 10:4)
The law shows the genuine boundaries of creation and the lines that God has established from the beginning. Knowing that all have fallen short of the law’s demands, Christ accomplishes what no other human has been able to accomplish. Therefore, all who believe on Christ are offered through Him the righteousness is given with the believer united in Him both in death, but also through His resurrection into life eternal.
Lord, the mystery is great, yet the reality is simple. I f I rely upon myself, I will fall short, but if I trust in You, You give me what I could never obtain on my own. Help me trust in You alone knowing that in You alone is the hope of the ages fulfilled. Through Your grace, guide me to trust and believe that You have already accomplished what is needed to be forever united with You and the Father through the Holy Spirit.
Thank You Jesus for gaining for me what I could never gain for myself through Your grace. Guide me in the grace You give in order to live according to the Father’s will. In all that I do this day, may I be guided to live in the freedom which is already mine through Your grace and graciously offer to others what You have first given me. May I be a witness this day of what You have accomplished while on earth. Amen.
