But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
-Jesus fulfilled the law and prophets; for the prophets spoke of the coming of the Messiah & He came. The law was fulfilled in Him thus, having been set free from sin, we became slaves of righteousness (Rom 6:18). Since we have all sinned & fallen short of the glory of God, by His grace; we have been justified freely through the redemption in Him.
-Just as Abraham “believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” (Gal 3:6), Whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Lord our Father, we thank You for Your everlasting love & mercy upon us. We know that we have sinned & fallen short of Your glory, forgive us. Instil in us firmer faith that it may be accounted to us for righteousness. May Your righteousness be the light of our lives always. Amen
