Saturday, July 29th: Psalms 49-50; Romans 1 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Psalms 49-50; Romans 1

Psalm 49:5b-9
The iniquity of my foes surrounds me.
6 They trust in their wealth
and boast of their abundant riches.
7 Yet these cannot redeem a person
or pay his ransom to God—
8 since the price of redeeming him is too costly,
one should forever stop trying—
9 so that he may live forever
and not see the Pit.

The pursuit of wealth is a high priority for the majority of our society.  However, the Bible is clear that you cannot buy your way into heaven.  There truly is no dollar amount high enough to pay our ransom.  We cannot buy our way in, we cannot earn our way in.  Jesus is our only way to heaven.  He paid the ransom - and it is a priceless gift!  He is the way, the truth, and the life!

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage:  Psalms 51-53; Romans 2

Good reminder! We often work first at getting ahead financially, but should be rather thinking of God and our spiritual lives first, growing in Him and becoming what He wants needs to be top priority.
