Thursday – Letters

Reading – Romans 5

“Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.”

Romans 5:11 NIV

And another thing…

Paul seems to get excited in this chapter about so many of the benefits of accepting God’s gift of sacrifice for us. Phrases like “not only” and “how much more” are scattered throughout the chapter.

This gift of new life is not just reason to be glad and celebrate.

It’s reason to boast – not the “I’m better than you,” kind of boast but the “look what God has done for me,” kind of boast!

Have you boasted lately?

Can you find it in you to boast about the amazing grace and mercy of God?
