Do you know the theme that runs through every book and section in the Holy Bible?
Well, here it is, from the New International Version of the Bible.
Monday, June 1, 2009: Romans 3:23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
What is the common denominator in every book of the Bible? Mankind sins: we do things that are not right even by our own standards, leave alone God’s standard.
Tuesday, June 2, 2009: Romans 6:23aFor the wages of sin [is] death;
What can you expect as the right salary for your sin? Eternal separation from God.
Wednesday, June 3, 2009: Romans 5:8But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
How do we erase our sins? We can’t; God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to bear our punishment.
Thursday, June 4, 2009: Romans 6:23bbut the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
So what procedure do we use to erase our sin? We accept the gift proffered by God.
Friday, June 5, 2009: Romans 10:9That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Do we reach out our hand to take this gift? We reach out the hand of our faith and believe that God raised Jesus Christ after His payment. We declare Him as our Lord.
