A Daily Devotion for Monday, September 27
Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin.
Today is a day I would like to read others’ thoughts before attempting to gather my own. I admit I don’t really understand this passage. Is Paul saying there is much more to life than observing the law? The law keeps our path straight, helps us to recognize right from wrong. But with Jesus, we have been made aware of how God would have us fully live. From Jesus we learn about love and compassion and forgiveness. I look forward to hearing from others today….. :o)
Holy Father, sometimes your Word is cloudy to me, and I don’t understand. Help me to glean what is meant to be learned today. Amen
