“One Act of Righteousness”
Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people. For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous. Romans 5:18-19
Righteous- morally upright, acting justly.
When we come to God for the SALVATION of our souls, we are carrying out a RIGHTEOUS act, we are acting justly. We are ACKNOWLEDGING that we are SINNERS, and that we NEED to have FORGIVENESS of our sins and have a RIGHT relationship with God.
We cannot have a RIGHT relationship with Him, IF there is SIN in our HEART. REGARDLESS, of whether we are a BELIEVER or an UNBELIEVER. IF we are a BELIEVER and have UNCONFESSED SIN(S) in our HEART, our fellowship with our Heavenly Father is severed, until we come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART and CONFESS ALL our sins to Him. If we, as TRUE BELIEVERS, have UNCONFESSED sins in our HEART, we won’t lose our SALVATION, but our FELLOWSHIP with God will change. Who are we to think that we can have a RIGHTEOUS relationship with the HOLY, RIGHTEOUS God of this universe, with UNCONFESSED sins in our HEART, when He couldn’t even look on His own SON, who took on the SINS of ALL mankind, when He was on the cross, dying for mankind to be able to have a RIGHT relationship with God, which was the ONE ACT of RIGHTEOUSNESS that brought mankind and the ALMIGHTY, RIGHTEOUS GOD together in a RIGHTEOUS relationship.
For the UNBELIEVER, they CANNOT obtain a RIGHTEOUS relationship with God, unless they come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING their sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL their HEART that Jesus died for THEM, personally. When Adam, ONE man, committed ONE trespass, it brought a sinful nature into the HEARTS of ALL mankind, and they are faced with ETERNAL CONDEMNATION, spending an ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL it’s HORRORS and NO WAY of ESCAPING.
But ONE man, JESUS CHRIST, through ONE RIGHTEOUS ACT, brought about JUSTIFICATION, or RIGHTEOUSNESS, and a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP between God and mankind, and those who have received the gift of SALVATION, will spend ALL of ETERNITY in Heaven with God, their Heavenly Father. Will YOU? Are you a TRUE BELIEVER, one who has a RIGHT relationship with God? Have you TURNED AWAY FROM your sins and TURNED TO Him, with a TRUE REPENTAN 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, and ACCEPTING His gift of SALVATION, through the ONE RIGHTEOUS ACT of ONE Man, Jesus Christ, have you received a RIGHT relationship with God? If you do this NOW, you can ESCAPE an ETERNITY in Hell. PLEASE COME to Him NOW!! He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
