Chronological Bible: December 9, Ride-a-long…
- Romans 6:1-10:21
“For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do…He condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” –Romans 8:3-4, ESV
God did what the law could not do. Jesus did what we could not do. And the Spirit does what we cannot do alone. Notice our location? Nowhere. We are along for the ride, partnered in the faith, we come alongside. They do the work, we just follow along in faith. Trying to justify yourself through working yourself to exhaustion will gain you nothing but frustration. Embrace his overarching, abundant beyond belief grace. Fathom His undying, everlasting love for you. And let Him do what He is doing so you can play with Him. He wants you next to Him; enjoy the ride.
