The Way to Righteousness

Scripture Reading: Romans 9:25-33

Today’s lesson is that trying to pursue righteousness by works resulted in Israel stumbling and falling. Instead, we should pursue righteousness by clearing the path to victory with the freedom found in Christ. The results are much more productive.

Our main responsibility is to trust God and receive righteousness through our faith. We depend on Him to fulfill our responsibility and accomplish His purpose. We receive the righteous reward through the grace of God or His unmerited favor.

It is ironic that the Jews pursued the way of righteousness but could not obtain it through works. On the other hand, the Gentiles did not pursue righteousness through works but were able to obtain it by faith. Our main mission in life is to go after the right thing in the right way. We exist for God’s purposes and He has provided the path.

This day with You God, we praise You for You are faithful, righteous, just, and gracious. You have given us in Christ someone who has set the path to follow and will go along with us on this journey through life. Our growing faith will never be taken away or depleted. The Gospel message sets us free and will never let us down. We are uplifted today by Your grace and Your wisdom given to us so we can live the way life is meant to be lived. In Jesus name. Amen.
