Father, these opening verses are sobering for me this morning. I need help today submitting to your righteousness. It’s your righteousness that has made it possible for my sin to be forgiven and your justice satisfied by faith in your Son Jesus. I don’t want to be zealous for you and your righteousness, and NOT know Jesus, NOT know what it means to be saved. Help my unbelief today. Help me rely on Christ and not my own strength and works. Give me a faith that joys in beholding you, that joys in beholding Jesus as the One crucified and risen for me. A faith that makes a difference today in the lives of people around me, not because IT is so great, but because YOU are so great.
