Verse of the Day (January 26, 2020)

Verse of the Day (January 26, 2020) #BMSeminary – Happy Lord’s Day! If we live by God’s grace, we draw near to God and we “cleanse [our] hands . . . and purify [our] hearts”, v. 8. That means we change both deeds and thoughts. Moreover, we “mourn and weep” over sin (v. 9). We rightly say that God humbles us, but James commands us to humble ourselves. Then God will exalt us (v. 10). This principle lies at the heart of the gospel itself. When we humble ourselves, lay down our moral pride and achievements, and cast ourselves on Christ in faith, God exalts us (Luke 18:14). We become his children, accepted and reconciled to the Father. (Gospel Transformation Study Bible)
