Scripture:
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” ~Romans 1:16-17

Observation:
Salvation is by faith. Righteousness is by faith. Those who are righteous will live by faith.

Application:
Am I living by faith in God in Christ or am I placing my faith in other things? How much do my current worries about earthly matters reveal a lack of faith in God? Is righteousness the byproduct of faith, or faith the byproduct of righteousness?

Prayer:
God, reveal Your righteousness anew to me and give me faith. Too often the worries of day to day stop me from having complete faith in You. I want the faith and the righteousness, however the two are related. Thank You for salvation through faith, and help me to share that gift with others.
