14 Days of the Old Testament in the New Testament

MEMORY VERSE
Matthew 15:11
It is not what enters into the mouth that defiles the man, but what proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man.

August 22 – Romans 1:8-17
The theme of Paul’s letter to the church at Rome is actually an Old Testament quotation. In 1:17, Paul repeated the words found in Habakkuk 2:4: “The righteous shall live by faith.” From this point, Paul laid out the plan of God for all his creation. This verse became the rallying cry for what history calls the Protestant Reformation. We owe our understanding of the Bible and our religious freedom to those who were willing to die for their belief in salvation by faith.
