A YEAR IN PRAYER    "Using God's Word to pray"

Do you understand that only (perfectly) righteous people will enter the kingdom of God? That means no one on their own account!

Is your hope to enter God’s kingdom based on your own righteousness, or is it solely on Christ’s righteousness?

Do you offer daily sacrifices of righteousness to the Lord by the power of your new nature?
