ESV — Daily Light on the Daily Path: Day 244
244
Morning
Romans 5:16; Isaiah 1:18; Isaiah 43:25; Isaiah 43:26; Isaiah 44:22; John 3:16; Romans 5:15; 1 Corinthians 6:11

The free gift following many trespasses brought justification.

“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.”—“I, I am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins. Put me in remembrance; let us argue together; set forth your case, that you may be proved right.”—I have blotted out your transgressions like a cloud and your sins like mist; return to me, for I have redeemed you.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”—But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man's trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many.—And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

Evening
Luke 19:13; Mark 13:34; Matthew 25:15; John 9:4; Luke 2:49; 1 Peter 2:21; 2 Timothy 4:2; 1 Corinthians 3:13; 1 Corinthians 15:58

“Engage in business until I come.”

“It is like a man going on a journey, when he leaves home and puts his servants in charge, each with his work, and commands the doorkeeper to stay awake.”—“To one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away.”

“We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work.”—“Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house?”—Leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps.

Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.—Each one's work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it.—Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

16 And the free gift is not like the result of that one man's sin. For cthe judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought djustification.


18  “Come now, nlet us reason1 together, says the Lord:

though your sins are like scarlet,

they shall be as owhite as snow;

though they are red like crimson,

they shall become like wool.
