    Prayer: On this Holy Saturday, the day before Easter, may Paul’s words inspire us to look beyond the physical world, embracing the new reality made possible by the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus the Christ. Amen.

    Scripture: Romans 8:1-11

    Today’s Devotion: Paul’s letters establish a high standard for those who follow him in the faith. More than “a hard act to follow,” Paul seems to set the bar so high that no mere mortal could cross it. Yet, after two millennia, his words continue to inspire us.

    Why are we not discouraged? Why do we not give up? Why do we still believe and hope for “the impossible”?

    The simple answer, of course, is TOMORROW. When the sun rises tomorrow morning, our celebration of Easter begins. With the resurrection, we’ll be reminded once more of Jesus’ assurance that “for mortals, [salvation] is impossible; but for God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).

    That sounds nice; but let’s face it: we’re cerebral creatures — rational beings, trained to seek a logical explanation for anything we’re asked to believe. In Romans 8, Paul addresses our empiricism by declaring it null and void! “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death” (Romans 8:2). And “if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness” (Romans 8:10).
