Sin and Repentance

2 Samuel 24:1-17 English Standard Version (ESV) David’s Census 24 Again the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel, and he incited David against them, saying, “Go, number Israel and Judah.” 2 So the king said to Joab, the commander of the army,[a] who was with him, “Go through all the tribes of Israel, from Dan to Beersheba, and number the people, that I may know the number of the…

Dead to Sin, Alive to God

Romans 6:8-14 English Standard Version (ESV) 8 Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9 We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. 10 For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. 11 So you also must consider yourselves dead to…

The Reign of Grace

Romans 5:18-21 English Standard Version (ESV) 18 Therefore, as one trespass[a] led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness[b] leads to justification and life for all men. 19 For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous. 20 Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, 21 so that, as…

David’s Last Words

The Last Words of David 23 Now these are the last words of David: The oracle of David, the son of Jesse,     the oracle of the man who was raised on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob,     the sweet psalmist of Israel:[a] 2 “The Spirit of the Lord speaks by me;     his word is on my tongue. 3 The God of Israel has spoken;     the Rock…

While We Were Still Sinners

Romans 5:6-11 English Standard Version (ESV) 6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.9 Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more…

The God Who Cares About Human Character

2 Samuel 22:21-31 English Standard Version (ESV) 21 “The Lord dealt with me according to my righteousness;     according to the cleanness of my hands he rewarded me. 22 For I have kept the ways of the Lord     and have not wickedly departed from my God. 23 For all his rules were before me,     and from his statutes I did not turn aside. 24 I was blameless before him,     and I kept myself…

Peace, Access, and Joy in the Midst of Suffering

Romans 5:1-5 English Standard Version (ESV) Peace with God Through Faith 5 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith[b] into this grace in which we stand, and we[c] rejoice[d] in hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces…

That the Promise Might Stand

Romans 4:16-25 English Standard Version (ESV) 16 That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his offspring—not only to the adherent of the law but also to the one who shares the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all, 17 as it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations”—in the…

Who Will Inherit the Earth?

Romans 4:13-15 English Standard Version (ESV) The Promise Realized Through Faith 13 For the promise to Abraham and his offspring that he would be heir of the world did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void. 15 For the law brings wrath, but where…

To the One Who Does Not Work

Romans 4:1-8 English Standard Version (ESV) Abraham Justified by Faith 4 What then shall we say was gained by Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh? 2 For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. 3 For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness.” 4 Now to the one who works, his wages are not counted…
