From start to finish

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 Рcompletely right, as in perfect Рwith God.

Other passages I am reading: Proverbs 1:1-33
