“Righteous in God’s Sight”
Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.
This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. Romans 3:20, 22-24
Once when I was out with a group of other Christians, knocking on doors and witnessing. I came upon a young man, who was apparently a non-believer. I asked him, “In your opinion, what do you believe it takes for a person to be able to go to heaven?” His answer was, “Keeping the Ten Commandments.” WRONG!! I explained to him that the Law, the WORKS of the Ten Commandments will NOT SAVE anyone. The Law makes us conscious, or aware of our sins, and can NOT make us RIGHTEOUS in GOD’S SIGHT. Sadly to say, the young man REJECTED his invitation to be SAVED and to be made RIGHTEOUS in GOD’S SIGHT.
The RIGHTEOUSNESS of God, which is having a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with Him, is ONLY POSSIBLE through His Son, Jesus Christ. You MUST BELIEVE in Him for your SALVATION and to be made RIGHTEOUS in God’s SIGHT. It doesn’t matter whether you are a Jew or a Gentile, because we ALL have sinned and we ALL fall short of the glory of God, and we ALL are headed for an ETERNITY in Hell, but through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, God’s GRACE was extended to ALL MANKIND, and those who BELIEVE and will ACCEPT Jesus Christ as their SAVIOR and LORD, will be SAVED, and made RIGHTEOUS in GOD’S SIGHT. Have you been made RIGHTEOUS in God’s SIGHT?
If your answer is NO, then you are LOST in your sins, and headed to Hell for ALL of ETERNITY, because you have NOT ACCEPTED GOD’S gift of SALVATION, and you are NOT RIGHTEOUS in GOD’S SIGHT. However, you can be by: TURNING AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURNING TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be made RIGHTEOUS in GOD’S SIGHT, with an ETERNITY in Heaven. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
