Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were based on works. They have stumbled over the stumbling stone, as it is written, “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense; and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.”(Romans 9:32-33 ESV)
Чому? Бо шукали не з віри, але якби з учинків Закону; вони бо спіткнулись об камінь спотикання, як написано: Ось Я кладу на Сіоні камінь спотикання та скелю спокуси, і кожен, хто вірує в Нього, не посоромиться! (До римлян 9:32-33 Ukrainian)
O God, our holy and dear Father in heaven ~ thank you for remembering us on this new day on which we may expect to enjoy some of your bounteous blessings. Increase our faith as we refuse to trust in our own paltry rightesouness that is so pitiful that it doesn’t count for anything toward our salvation. Grant us joy, peace and love as we rely with hope upon the glorious perfection of your Son who is our Lord and Messiah. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
