Romans 4:16 KJV — Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,
Reflection on God’s Word for Today - 20 Nov 2023
God's blueprint for reconciling human beings to Himself is very ingenious and could only have been designed by the Omniscient One. Jehovah ensured that salvation will only be obtained by faith in the finished work of Christ on the cross at Calvary. So no one can have a legalistic claim of descent from a "holy" ancestry. That was the essence of the promise He made to Abraham who is generally referred to as the father of faith. Not your moral integrity nor your philanthropy and intellectual accomplishments, but your faith alone in God's salvation grace will qualify you to become a child of Jehovah. So come down from your high pedestal and humble yourself before Christ and be saved from the wrath to come.
Pray: Lord Jesus, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and You died in my place, please receive me into Your fold. #Mok
