• Declaration Versus Transformation Devotional

    Romans 4:22–24a

    Our justification is no “legal fiction.” When God considers the evidence upon which He justifies us, the evidence He considers is what Christ has done, not what we have done. This is our only hope, because if our lives are the standard, we could never be righteous in His sight. Past, present, and future sin would always stand in the way. The Lord transforms us, but He does not transform us in order to justify us. He transforms us because He has justified us in Christ. View Resource

  • The Example of Abraham Devotional

    Galatians 3:6–14

Do people speak of your faithfulness as an example to follow or hypocrisy to be shunned? Purpose again to live by faith, a faith which holds firmly to the whole counsel of God. View Resource
