Righteousness Through Faith in Jesus Christ
"But now a righteousness from God, apart
from the law, has been made known, to
which the Law and the Prophets testify.
This righteousness from God comes
through faith in Jesus Christ to all
who believe. There is no difference,
for all have sinned and fall short of the
glory of God, and are justified freely by
His grace through the redemption
that came by Jesus Christ.
God presented Him as a sacrifice of
atonement, through faith in His blood.
He did this to demonstrate His justice,
because in His forbearance He had left
the sins committed beforehand unpunished-
He did it to demonstrate His justice at the
present time, so as to be just and the one
who justifies the man who has faith in Jesus."
Romans 3: 21- 26
We can never save ourselves alone through good works for the wages of sin is death. We can only be saved and made righteous by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ already paid in full the penalties for all our sins. We only have to surrender ourselves to Him and accept His offer of eternal life by accepting Him as our Lord and savior and letting His most precious blood wash away all our iniquities and sins.
Jesus, We Enthrone You
