May the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you. II Thes 3: 16
Word:Now that no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for, The righteous man shall live by faith.” Galatians 3:11
We live by faith, not by sight –II Corinthians 5: 11
Thought: Trying to be right with God by our own effort doesn’t work. Good intentions such as “I’ll do better next time” or “I’ll never do that again” usually end in failure.
