This week’s readings are based on the “Starting Blocks” sermon from the On Your Marks series. This season, we want to focus on what it means to be the Church (God’s people). Slow down, read the text, and then let it read you…
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. God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished.
Romans 3:23-25 (NIV)
Jesus is our Reconciler. Without Him, we will always fall short of the glory of God. What resonates with you today over the fact that through Jesus we can be reconciled with God?
