The Kitchen Table Galatians Day 9
yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified. Galatians 2:16
Hypocrisy lives in hopeless lives. Happiness lives in a hopeful life. Trying to live this life by the law is hopeless; we just can’t justify our lives by ourselves. Only Jesus can do that. Only Jesus lived the perfect life and only Jesus can justify the life of a man. To be justified is be just as if I’d never sinned. That’s amazing and awesome. Faith makes all the difference. Faith in Jesus and what He did for us. We can try to live by the law but we can’t do it. We need the Spirit of God to live this life and that happens through faith in Christ and what He did and does. The law doesn’t save us; the law tells us that we need to be saved. Jesus saves us, He saves our spirit immediately, making us pure, and now by faith He will save our mind, emotions, will, and our body if we will live by faith in Him. There’s Hope that makes us happy in Jesus. Trust Jesus today!
