Becoming More Alive

Action Plan

Meditate on these truths from Romans 3:21-31.


 Has now been revealed (3:21)

 Is "apart from the law" (3:21)

 Was "witnessed by the law and the prophets" (3:21)

 Is "of God" (3:22)

 Is "through faith in Christ Jesus"(3:22)

 Is for "all those who believe" (3:22)

 Is a free gift (3:24)

 Is by God's grace (3:24)

 Is "through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus" (3:24)

 Is made possible by the sacrifice of Christ Jesus(3:25)

What gratitude can you offer to this righteous and loving God for this amazing gift of Jesus?

O God and Father, this is too profound for me to understand fully and yet too inviting for me to turn away. How am I to respond to your gift of Christ's life in exchange for mine? All I can do is bow before you in quiet wonder and adoration. O just Judge and gracious Savior, I do whisper my poor love back to you. Receive my worship now, for I offer it to you through the infinite merit of Christ.  In his holy name, Amen.

Prayer adapted from Ray Ortlund, A Passion for God, 63.
