Faith in Christ avails before God


For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. Galatians 5:5-6

The Spirit of God, working through His Word, has given us the sure hope that we are counted righteous by God through faith in Christ Jesus and His atoning sacrifice on the cross. Being circumcised or not being circumcised is of no avail. What counts is having genuine faith in Christ Jesus, not a dead faith but a faith that also moves us to love God and neighbor.

Thank You, O God, for accepting me and counting me righteous through faith alone in the Son. By Your Spirit, move me to live my life to Your glory and for the good of my neighbor. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

[Scripture is quoted from the King James Version of the Bible.]
