Romans 1:17 (NIV) – For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”
“In this gospel about Jesus, a unique righteousness is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last. Righteousness that comes to us through Jesus, and is appropriated by faith, is the theme of Paul’s letter to the Romans” (The Hayford Bible Handbook). Your good works won’t buy you a ticket into heaven. Your journey begins by embracing faith in Jesus Christ. And along every step of life’s journey we discover the depths of His great love and provision for us. Faith is a joyful journey.
