Today is Day 57 and the start of week #9 in our 90 Day Challenge! I hope you are encouraged by the time you are spending with God in His Word.
Yesterday we finished the book of Galatians and were reminded that Jesus is all we need! There were some people around the Galatian church who were trying to add to what Jesus did for us through His death on the cross. They were saying you had to accept Jesus and follow the Old Testament Law. Paul said Jesus was enough. His death on the cross and His resurrection from the grave satisfied our need for a Savior. In Galatians 2:20-21 he writes,
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!”
What Jesus did is enough to save us. We don’t need to keep the Old Testament Law to be made right with God. Everything we do should in gratitude for what Jesus did, not our effort to try to gain His approval.
Keep up the good work of the 90 Day Challenge. Remember that our goal is to develop the habit of spending time with God. If you are right on track, behind or even ahead of schedule, keep opening His Word and listen to what He has to say.
