The Kitchen Table Devotions

Day 23

“Righteousness”

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, 24 being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; 25 whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation  in His blood through faith

Romans 3:21-25

Always keep righteousness in front of religion and always keep love in front of the law.  The Bible says, “But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been manifested…”  If being right with God comes apart from the law then being right with God is found in the love of God.  So, it’s not about getting our lives right to find the love of God, it’s about finding the love of God that gets our lives right with Him.  This life begins through faith in God’s love and it’s lived that way too.
