For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
The most important question a person could ever ask is found in Job 9:2, “How can a man be in the right before God?”
No one has been born righteous, and there is no religion or human effort that can make us right with God. Which is why we must look to the pardon and provision of God’s grace for our salvation!
If you have placed your faith in Jesus Christ, God has declared you righteous. You have been forgiven of your sins through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. That’s the Good News!
It can be easy to go through the day—or even many days—and not think about this powerful truth. But a heart of gratitude will constantly remember what God has done… and how our lives have been forever changed by the sacrifice of Jesus!
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8).
EVERY DAY, BE THANKFUL THAT YOU ARE
RIGHTEOUS IN GOD’S SIGHT BECAUSE OF JESUS.
