November 2: Righteousness

It was impossible for Israel to follow “the Law” but that did not make it useless. As the Apostle Paul would later say, it was glorious in that it revealed God’s holiness and mankind’s sin.

Galatians 3:23-25

 But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed.  Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.  But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.

Through the sacrificial system atonement was provided because atonement could only be made through the shedding of innocent blood.

PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO ACCEPT GOD’S OFFER OF JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH.
