Spiritual Sundays

singing birds

The righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
Romans 3:22-24 NIV

Commentary: What the devil loves is that vague cloud of unspecified guilt feeling or unspecified virtue by which he lures us into despair or presumption.

Thanks to Charlotte and Ginger for hosting Spiritual Sundays.

How great it is to boldly come before the throne of God knowing that He sees Jesus' righteousness in me. That was a great quote from CS Lewis. Have a great weekend to you. God bless.
