Jesus Christ, Grace, Righteousness, Bible, Good News

 
 

As God's children, we all want to obey God's words. No matter how we try, we will always find out that we can never fully obey God's words - and this is because of the weakness of our flesh. That was what the Jews found out when they boast that all that God said they could do when they asked for the Law - the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai. The wanted to boast of their ability to obey all of God's commandments but the first thing they did was to break the first commandment when they built the golden calf to worship. 
 
Daddy God knows that if our righteousness is based on our keeping  every word and commandment of God,  every man will be guilty before God and cannot be in right standing before Him. Just like a Daddy who loves us, He doesn't wants us to feel guilty and be ashamed or afraid to be in His presence.

So God sent His own beloved Son so that through His death on the cross, we may receive the gift of righteousness through grace (undeserved favor). 

For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus ..... 2nd Corinthians 5:21

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believe ..... Romans 10: 4

Abraham believe God and it was accounted to him for righteousness.  Now to him who works, his wages are not counted as grace but as debts.  Now to him who does not work but believe on Him who justifies, his faith is accounted for righteousness ..... Romans 4:3-4 

For if by one man's offence, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ ..... Romans 5:17 

Righteousness, right standing before God is a gift. It was given to us even though we don't deserve it - and this is called grace. It is what God did for us through His Son Jesus Christ on the cross to justify us from all condemnation. It is not about our doing the right things so that we can be righteous before God. 

The good news is that we all can freely receive this gift - the gift of His Son Jesus Christ and what He has done for us at the cross. We can freely receive this free gift of righteousness. It is available to all and for all who believe .... Romans 3:22

When we receive God's gift of righteousness, it empowers us to be led by the Spirit to do the things that pleases our Daddy God. When we  believe and recieve this gift of righteousness and know that we are always in right standing before God, we are set free from all guilt and condemnation, it empowers us to do the right things.
