Today’s reading: Romans 1:8-17
Of all the books in the Bible, I think Romans has by far the most doctrine.¬† In our culture and around the world in religion, the issue of faith and works and how they work together is a huge subject.
Paul says in this passage, that the Good News or the gospel “tells us how God makes us right in his sight.¬† This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. (v.17)”
Faith completes the work.¬† Completely.¬† We are changed from the inside out to do good works, but faith is what makes us right – completely right, as in perfect – with God.
Other passages I am reading: Proverbs 1:1-33
