For my morning devotions, I am using Proverbs 31 Ministries First 5 app on my smartphone, along with the Christ Alone Experience Guide.
I began this study because it is going to take me through the New Testament books of Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Philemon. The Apostle Paul had much to say to these churches and fellow Christians, and we can learn much from his teaching too.
Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.”
Galatians 2:16, “…a man is not justified by the works of the law but through faith in Christ Jesus.”
Galatians 3:21-22, “Is the law, therefore, opposed to the promises of God? Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that could impart life, then righteousness would certainly have come by the law. But Scripture has locked up everything under the control of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.”
From the five days I’ve studied, I have today written that I am a child of promise, free to live in victory through Christ Jesus. I am an heir to the kingdom of God, an eternal citizen of Heaven!!
Glory Hallelujah! Thank you Jesus!!
