Just If I’d

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Romans 5:1

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

O-bservation:

St. Paul said those of us who “Follow Jesus” have peace with God. The reason we do is that we have been “Justified Through FAITH!”

A-pplication:

When I was a young boy, my father would talk to me about Justification Through Faith. He would say to me, “Rich, you could actually say that God’s grace is so wonderful that when He forgives you, “It’s ‘Just If I’d’ never sinned before. That’s what it means to be ‘Justified Through FAITH,’ son.” I must be honest; I’ve never forgotten that line since Dad first told me that. I never wanted to let my Heavenly Father down. I wanted to run as far away from sin as possible. But, when I did sin I knew that God loves me and will forgive me and that it was “Just If I’d” never sinned before. Don’t let fear pull you down this AM if you need to return to Jesus. He will forgive you and set you right. Right like … “Just If I’d” never sinned before.

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

This AM I’m in need of some of your grace. I’m so messed up that I need You to forgive me. That way it will be like “Just If I’d” never sinned before! Amen
