Morning Reads - “Justification By Faith” - Is living & active - (Acts 10:34-43- John 8:12-20) …

Good morning. Great is His faithfulness.


Greek word of the day- ἐπιλανθάνομαι epilanthánomai, ep-ee-lan-than'-om-ahee; middle voice from G1909 and G2990; to lose out of mind; by implication, to neglect:—(be) forget(-ful of).

Hebrews 6:10

For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of[fn]love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.


Acts 10:34-43


This morning's readings we see how Peter is focused on the saving work and power of Jesus Christ, His death and Resurrection, and Peter also witnessed how Christ fulfilled the Word spoken by the prophets of the OT. We also learn how justification by faith is not a one-time event, but an ongoing process of spiritual growth. We see two conditions given by God in addition to faith: God accepts whoever FEARS HIM AND WORKS RIGHTEOUSNESS. This does not deny justification by faith, but instead is demonstrating clearly that justification is not by faith alone (I read from James 2:20-24). In this reading from James 2- I spoke about the faith of Abraham and how his faith was living and active. Abraham loved by both the faith and the works and was a man of righteousness and good deeds to all even strangers. Abraham is a great example for all us to try and imitate in our walks and journeys with God.


“God shows no partiality because all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.”


John 8:12-20


Jesus is the Light of the world, and He and the Father are ONE and share the same nature, one cannot be known apart from the other.


Romans 8:1

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who[a] do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.


"Repentant sinners will have NO CONDEMNATION if they remain IN CHRIST JESUS through faith and baptism and if they WALK in the power of THE SPIRIT."

(Orthodox Study Bible)


Numbers 6:24-26

“The Lord bless you and keep you;


25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,


And be gracious to you;


26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,


And give you peace.” ’


In Christ love Jared W Campbell
