Scripture Reading -Romans 1:16-17
I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith."
Thought of the Day
God’s Word is the key, as Paul reminds us in his letter to the Romans. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the good news of God that we can bring to people who don’t know about Him. The Bible is how we learn about God and Jesus. It is their Word on earth. God saves us through our faith in Jesus, and it is in God’s Word that we learn about Jesus. And His Word can bring faith to those who listen to it. It is through the Word that we can understand the grace we’ve been given.
