Romans 5 “1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:”

(We have been conditioned to believe that doing right equates to being righteous! That being blessed equates with doing right!

“Do you realize that we have been conditioned to associate being blessed with doing right? Most belief systems are based on a system of merit whereby you need to fulfill certain requirements—give to the poor, do good to others and care for the underprivileged—to attain a certain state of righteousness. It all sounds very noble, self-sacrificial and appealing to our flesh, which likes to feel that our good works have earned us our righteousness.”

“But God is not looking at your nobility, sacrifices or good works to justify you. He is only interested in Jesus’ humility at the cross. He looks at His Son’s perfect sacrifice at Calvary to justify you and make you righteous! Attempting to be justified by your good works and trying your best to keep the Ten Commandments to become righteous is to negate the cross of Jesus Christ.”

“It is as good as saying, “The cross is not enough to justify me. I need to depend on my good works to make myself clean and righteous before God.” JP)

Romans 10 “3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.”

THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH! I love you all very much!(NLM)
