Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

INTRODUCTION: Our relationship with God is built on our faith

Hebrews 11:1 Now FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Ephesians 2:8 For BY GRACE are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Grace is unmerited or undeserved favor.

Many people are struggling in their spiritual lives because they are constantly trying to find some ground where they can make themselves acceptable to God. They are unsure in their salvation because they are depending on their own works. I am sure that is a frustrating feeling because we can never be acceptable on our own merit.

It is only by Gods grace that we are acceptable to Him. It is only through us accepting the death of Jesus on the cross as a substitution for our own punishment that we can approach God. Jesus had to suffer for sin in our place. When we accept Jesus' atoning death in our place, we then receive the grace of God.

None of it is of ourselves. We can never be good enough to be accepted by Him. We can just be eternally thankful for His grace and show our thanks for that grace by being obedient to Him.

Please feel free to contact me by email at with questions, comments or even suggestions for further devotional studies.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know. Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus. I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
