December 30. 2012 | John Bayles | What, Then, Shall We Say in Response to This? (Romans 8)

It has often occurred to me that the Bible is not a textbook for outlining all the actions we should perform for God to secure our faith (such as prayer, service, witnessing, worship, fellowship with other believers and giving of money). The "Good News" is that GOD has acted first. He has secured our faith by Himself and for Himself. It is not what we can do for God that saves us, but what God has done for us through Jesus Christ that saves us.

The Bible is a book which describes how God has redeemed man to Himself and for His glory to be expressed. The Bible is a book which gives us reason to feel overwhelmed by God's kindness, greatness, presence, provision, and the personal sacrifice and His love - for us.

As we look at the text today, I hope we will become overwhelmed with thanksgiving. May we see together the beauty, majesty, and humility of Jesus Christ. I believe we will discover that heartfelt praise, worship, and adoration are our only legitimate responses to God’s amazing grace.
