DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Abraham Justified By Faith, Not Works
Many people, including some Christians, have the erroneous belief that they can be justified by the works of the law. They think that they can bribe God by their adjudged “good” works they rendered to God. By so doing, they work for God without following the proper channels of first giving their lives to Jesus and accepting justification through faith. It is then good works must follow. No matter how good they may be, Justification is important, but only those who put their faith in Christ will receive it and it is through faith they can sustain and enjoy it.
Point of Emphasis: Abraham believed God and it was counted to him for righteousness.
Prayer Point: Lord, I put my faith in You for justification, justify me oh Lord.
