Collect for Purity
Clearly, God’s promise to give the whole earth to Abraham and his descendants was based not on his obedience to God’s law, but on a right relationship with God that comes by faith.
We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.
No one can ever be made right with God by doing what the law commands. The law simply shows us how sinful we are.
“I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.”
Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?
But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness.
This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight.
