Promise is Fulfilled

In Galatians 3:15-18, Paul refutes the objection that the Law of Moses annuls the promise to Abraham. Instead, he explains that the law and the promise is fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ. The ultimate reward for Christians is salvation and the law in the Old Testament is not set aside but is followed through the promise fulfilled in Christ.

God’s Word explains the promise of an ultimate reward given without any conditions. We are not taskmasters who have to earn the reward but those who are loved by God. We were created for relational reasons as God’s companion and He wants each of us to grow spiritually.

Each day, we get a new start by God’s grace. We may miss the mark some days but grace took on flesh and became visible in the person of Christ. Through Christ, we are forgiven and by accepting Christ as Savior, we have just what we need to be perfect in God’s eye.

This day with You Lord will be amazing. We may face a few difficulties today but we can feel sure that these difficulties will be overcome. We can look forward to things falling into place for a great day and for this, we give praise to You today. Amen.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
