Week 2: Day 3
Scripture to meditate on:
But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus. – Romans 3:21-26
We acknowledge that our human capacity to love is flawed due to sin. Reflect on your own brokenness and how it may have affected your relationships and actions.
Questions to ponder:
- Can you recall moments when your brokenness hindered your ability to love others fully?
- How does understanding your own brokenness affect your approach to others who may also be broken?
