Today is day 15 of the #31daystowrite challenge along with day 15 of the Ultimate Blog challenge. I am continuing my #ScripturesofFaith series. Today I want to look at Galatians 3:11. We are instructed that we are not justified by the law, but that we must live by faith. Unlike the children of Israel, once Jesus Christ came and died on the Cross for our sins, we were freed from the burden of the law of having to go through a middle man – the priests – and we were able to come and speak to God directly. We are required to have faith in Jesus Christ and His dying on the Cross for our sins. He came that we might “have live and have it more abundantly. We received the blessing of eternal life by accepting Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior.
While no good deeds we do can bring us salvation, having an open heart and an open mind to believe in Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior provides us with eternal life.
