September 24, 2022: Day 207 – Romans 5-8 and Isaiah 55, 61

We have read these Scriptures alread, but each of them is worth reading again, and again, and again.  In the Romans reading we find the basis for our theology, a recognition that sin has made itself felt within our lives and so we are in need of a Savior that we will embrace and so make a U-turn in our lives to follow him instead of our sinful desires.

Chapter 8 I call “pieces of 8” because it is probably the most valuable chapter in all of Scripture in so far that it defines our relationship with God through Jesus.  We are in need of a Savior and Jesus is that Savior.  Let’s just drop some of the more significant verses in these chapters: 5:1 “We have been justified through faith.” 5:8 “But God demonstrated his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, he died for us.” 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord.” 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him.”  8:31 “If God is for us who can be against us?”
