“Now that no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for, “The righteous man shall live by faith” (Galatians 3:11).

It is here that many depart.  Or at least it seems so.  We say we are justified by faith, so why do so many live as though they must do something?  Is not the grace of Christ sufficient?  Yes, and more than that, it demonstrates the difference Christ makes as we become what He is shaping us to be by conforming us to His image.  Come then on the journey that Christ has prepared.

Lord, You must lead and I must follow.  Guide me, O Lord, that I would indeed follow where You lead.  You have fulfilled the law and it is what lies beyond that matters and not whether I can figure out how to obey the law too.  Lead me as You have all the saints that I may live into this new life You have in store for all who are walking or have walked this life of faith in grace.

Lord Jesus, there are many things You have taught Your disciples.  Guide me, O Lord, that I may walk in the newness of life that You give by grace.  Let me see and understand the law with new eyes, with Your eyes.  In all things, empower me by Your grace that I would be one who is following You always.  You have given me faith.  Teach me how to live by that faith that I may become like You.  Amen.
