Today's Verse: Romans 8:1-2 (KJV)

Monday, August 1, 2005

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
— Romans 8:1-2 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Can't you imagine the day when we see Jesus and he says to you, "You are mine! My righteousness and glory are yours! Enter into your Father's eternal reward!"
If we are in Christ, we don't face judgment, only welcome, with God our Father! His Spirit lives in us. His grace has set us free from the power of sin and death. His Son has paid the price for our sins. We are the beloved children of God!

Video Commentary...

We've included Phil's ToGather video from four years ago as an added blessing to our verse today:

My Prayer...

I praise you, loving and gracious Father, for your mercy and grace. Your steadfast and redeeming love never ceases. Your mercies are endless. Your love is new and fresh every morning as your Spirit fills my life and your hope revives me to face another day. Thank you! In Jesus' name I praise you. Amen.
