Blogging through the Bible with Ally at Speckled Goat blog, Romans 3 was my joy and challenge this week. I am stretching to share in this way, but sharing His Word as I understand it, is an absolute joy and pleasure.
Most striking to me, in Romans 3, is the strong language (KJV):
poison of asps from lips
mouth full of cursing and bitterness
(v.18) THERE IS NO FEAR OF GOD BEFORE THEIR EYES
It seems to explain the NEED for Christ, and the establishment of "the law of faith" (v.27)
23) For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God:
24) Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
25) Whom God hath set forth to be propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for remission of sins that are past, through the forbearane of God:
26)To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
27) Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
WOW LORD !! Romans chapter 3 is such a cool chapter, for explaining how the law(s) pre-Jesus Christ, were to humble man, and show the need for Messiah, to give humanity a chance to choose Christ as savior.
Redeemer that hung on cross
Praise the Lord for the way... Justifier who joined Gentile with Jew, and lives to intercede, for me, so that through faith there is a way to paradise.
Now, I depend on You Father, and Jesus, and the Holy Spirit which you send, to help me to live and grow, in Your wisdom, Your ways.
May I choose Jesus as my savior,
All of my days!
In Jesus's name I pray. AMEN
