Day 55/260: Read Romans 3
“God said it, I believe it, and that settles it.” That’s a nice sentiment, but the middle phrase is unnecessary. If God says something, that settles it…whether I believe it or not.
“For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect? Certainly not1 indeed, let God be true but every man a liar.”
God’s truth does not depend upon man’s belief. God is true even if every soul rejected Him.
The Bible is a big book, and one could spend a lifetime studying it without exhausting its treasures. “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
May we never tire of diving in to the depths of God’s Word. It will continually give us new heights for which to strive. It is the standard for every child of God to follow.
“He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him—the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day” (John 12:48).
God said it, and that settles it.
Memory (Recite to a friend without looking)
Romans 1:16. For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
Pray for the wisdom to accept God’s revelation and the conviction to follow it. Pray for stronger faith.
