The Game of Life Day 114
Navigating Life’s Highway: Defined
But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness, 6 just as David also speaks of the blessing on the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works: “BLESSED ARE THOSE WHOSE LAWLESS DEEDS HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN, AND WHOSE SINS HAVE BEEN COVERED. Romans 4:5-7
Forgiveness is the key to every other thing in this life. That sounds strange but it’s true. All of us have forever but what we all need is forgiveness. Forgiveness determines where we will live forever. We receive forgiveness by faith in God’s word and work. It’s disturbing how our memories of past actions and accidents cancel our confidence in life. We don’t want to live or drive through this life in fear, failure, or fantasy. It all starts with believing God for forgiveness. God credits those who believe as innocent and right. With that confidence, we can live in God’s blessing.
