THE MOST IMPORTANT VERSES IN THE BIBLE

January 6

God promised Abram (Abraham) that He would have more spiritual children (all believers after Abraham) than the stars. Genesis 15:5-6 are probably the most important verses in the Bible in that it shows that salvation is by faith for the first time.  Here are the first verses in the Bible unmistakably to speak of (1) ‘faith,’ (2) ‘righteousness,’ and (3) ‘justification.'”597 Here we believe that Abraham believed in a Christ to come.  He did not understand it all as the Old Testament progressively revealed more and more prophecies that Jesus would fulfill and then in the New Testament they were finally understood. We need to remember our devotional from yesterday that all Scripture is profitable (2 Timothy 3:16-17) and read all of it, not just the easy parts but plan to read it from cover to cover and get all that God wants us to learn from it. 597Boice, 2:98.

Genesis 15:5-6 Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” 6 And he believed in the LORD, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.

BEARING OUR SIN ON THE CROSS

Jesus is really bearing Simon’s sin on the cross even though Simon is carrying the cross of Jesus.  After we come to Christ we see Simon as a picture of what we are supposed to do as Christians. In Matthew 16:24 it says If anyone desires to come after Me, let him...
