SOAP Day 208

S:Again I ask: Did Israel not understand? First, Moses says, “I will make you envious by those who are not a nation; I will make you angry by a nation that has no understanding.” (Romans 10:17 NIV)

O: We are not justified by the law but rather by Faith. The law serves only to show that we are in need of a savior and that only by Faith in Him will we be redeemed. Jesus was, is, and will be only one person to ever fully satisfy the law and we must have Faith that He did so perfectly and completely.

A: Reading this verse out of context can be confusing, but what I get out of it is, God is there and has been there desiring us to desire him. Don’t get caught up in the laws and “rules” that will remove you from a relationship with Jesus. Love God, love Jesus, desire the relationship and the rest will come naturally.

P: Father God, thank you for sending Your son, Jesus, to die for us, rise for us and show us the way to have a relationship with You and light the path to our eventual home. Please protect me from being so distracted or caught up in everything else that simply is not important or that prevents me from having a relationship with You. I love You and want to have a relationship with You. Amen.
