We endured the harsh winter.
We made the best of it,
not knowing when the warmth would
come and feeling like it never would.
But here it is! The first day of something new.
We know the Greek word. We knew it's literal meaning, but we did not know the new meaning that the Father has put into it. So many of the Greek words used in classical Greek have now a new and richer meaning in the Pauline Revelation, and so we are going to study Redemption from perhaps a new angle. We will begin with Romans 3:21, "But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets."
You remember that the key word for Romans is Righteousness, or the ability to stand in the Father's presence without a sense of guilt or inferiority -- stand there without condemnation or the sense of sin consciousness." EW Kenyon
