The Kitchen Table Devotions
But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Romans 3:21-23
The Glory of God is the Love of God that makes us right before God. Being right isn’t found in obeying the law, by in living in the love of God. Holiness is living in and living out the love of God in our lives personally. God makes us “right” by faith in His love and what His love did for us and then we become religious about that love. Always keep righteousness in front of religion. We are righteous because of faith, and we are religious because of love. God makes us right by faith in the love of Jesus. The law reveals what is wrong with our lives and right with God’s life. But it’s God’s love that makes both right.
