Scripture Reading: Romans 10:1-10
Paul’s action here is to explain the true way to righteousness. There are two types of righteousness explained here. One is righteousness by faith and the other is righteousness by the law.
The Jews believed in righteousness by the law. They didn’t see a need for salvation because they practiced the Old Testament law. The problem is that no one can be that devout. Their pride and self-righteousness got in their way so they worshiped their law but rejected their Savior.
True righteousness is by faith. Being careful about pride and never depending on your own good deeds but admitting the need for a Savior. Believing what Christ has already done on the Cross and accepting Him as Lord and Savior.
This day with You Lord, we are taking the first step to an amazing day because we believe You will surprise us today with great opportunity. You will work in mysterious ways and all we need to do is take that one step and follow through with more steps as we go through the day. With you by our side, we can live life passionately, learn humbly, and live boldly. Amen.
