Bible Reading Day 217

Day 217: August 5 (Romans 5)

Good morning!

Romans 5 is a wonderful chapter of this towering epistle.

From the opening statement that “since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us.” to the beautiful conclusion: “So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” the whole chapter is full of life and grace.

Paul tells us that we have become friends of God, restored to relationship by the death of Jesus. What a powerful truth for us today!

I recommend you read the chapter with a pen and notebook, in order to write down the promises and truths that stand out to you from Paul’s writing. There are many wonderful truths just in this one chapter!

Have a great day!
