"By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain."

I Corinthians 15:2, NIV 

 

Now, if you or I told somebody they had to do what the Bible said or they wouldn't be saved, we would probably be accused of being legalistic, judgmental, or of being like the Pharisees.

 

But it is not us who are saying that... it is God!

 

The question is do we think that He is being legalistic? This is why we study - to find out truths like these!

 

"Why do you call Me, 'Lord, Lord', and do not do what I say?"

Luke 6:46, NIV 

 

Today is the 52nd day of the commitment to study through the New Testament in 90 days. Today's readings are the 14th through the 16th chapters of I Corinthians. May God richly bless your efforts as you study His will for you!
