Righteousness

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Romans 10:3. For ignoring the righteousness that comes from God, and seeking instead to establish their own righteousness, they did not submit to Gods righteousness.

Christianity is the only faith that acknowledges man cannot be righteous through his own efforts. Only God is righteous. We really don’t understand God’s righteousness because we are so far from it. Man strives to do good things and be good but that isn’t righteous. Man is not consistent nor perfect. God, by His grace, provided us a path to His righteousness. The path is through the cross on which Jesus, God’s Word in flesh, died and through His physical resurrection into the very real Presence with the Father. The question today is are you falsely surviving for righteousness or are you connected to the only righteousness through Jesus?
