DAILY READINGS: Ruth 3:1-4:22; Isaiah 43:1-44:5; 2 Cor. 3:1-4:6

For so is the will of God…well doing. 1 Peter 2:15 , KJV 

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works. Ephesians 2:10, KJV

The deception regarding the value of good works in the eyes of God has spread to such an extent that many believe that their good works will be the means to their acceptance with God. The Bible teaches that all works will be judged, but salvation is based on the finished work of Christ who died in our place for our sins. My “part” is either to trust in that sacrifice as being for me, or to reject it. Have you accepted, or are you still trying to work your way into God’s favour? —Rick Morse

My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and
righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly
lean on Jesus’ name. —Edward Mote
