RIGHTEOUSNESS BY FAITH

“…Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness” (Romans 4:3).
There is a righteousness which is without the Law; that is the righteousness which is by the faith of Jesus Christ and it is credited to your account when you believe in Jesus.
This righteousness by faith excludes works, in other words, it’s not based on the works of the Law or your good actions. It’s not based on how good and nice you have been, but on faith. It has nothing to do with what you did and what you didn’t do, for it’s the result of what Christ has done.
Sadly, some Christians are still trying to be righteous, holy, and pleasing to God! They are struggling to be what they already are. They are trying to possess what God already says belongs to them. The Bible says, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1). That means you’re already righteous, hence, you don’t need to struggle to be righteous.
There are people who believe that their good works will answer for them in life. They think they rank highly with God because they don’t do anything wrong. The righteousness which is by faith doesn’t rely on your good works but on your faith in the God that justifies the ungodly (Romans 4:5).
I’m talking about the One that saved Rahab, the prostitute. All Rahab did was to believe in the God that justifies the ungodly and embrace the righteousness of God.
You may be reading this blog and you have committed many sins in your life. You have lied, cheated, done a lot of terrible things, and made a lot of mistakes. Well, you don’t need to cry, feel condemned, or keep brooding over all the wrong things you have done! We have a God that justifies the ungodly.
Just believe in Him! Believe in the cleansing power of the Blood of Jesus; that blood is still available today.
