Tue 8.31 FAITH
Healer by Kari Jobe
What does all this mean? Even though the Gentiles were not trying to follow God's standards, they were made right with God. And it was by faith that this took place. But the people of Israel, who tried so hard to get right with God by keeping the law, never succeeded. Why not? Because they were trying to get right with God by keeping the law instead of by trusting in Him. They stumbled over the stumbling block in their path.
God warned them of this in the Scriptures when He said,"I am placing a stone in Jerusalem that makes people stumble, a rock that makes them fall. But anyone who trusts in Him will never be disgraced.
Lord strengthen our faith ad have mercy on us for it's weakness and for our lack of perseverance when things get busy or hard. Please keep us close to You. Build for yourself a people our of the meanest and the worst, the fickle and the faint, here and around the world. Through the power of Your Spirit that raised Your Son our Lord Jesus from the dead!
