All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away.
No works of man can make him appear righteous before a Holy God, for this reason Christ Jesus came to be our righteousness. Jesus came to enable us fulfill the righteous requirements of the law which we could have never been able to achieve. So if any man should boast, may such man boast of the works of Jesus on the cross.
Right standing is made possible only through Jesus. No matter how much you keep the 10 commandments, you can never be right before a Holy God. The only way you can be right before God is through his son Jesus.
I have heard people say their good works will take them to heaven. This is not true as there is no amount of good works that can make you pure. Also how much good works can you do that will measure up to the Holiness of God? None!
It is only Jesus that can make you have a right standing before God. This is possible because, if you recognize Jesus in your life by surrendering (handing over) your life to him, he will always defend you, he will always present himself to the father in place of you. So, whenever the father looks upon you, he sees the image of his only begotten son Jesus.
Free yourself today from the burdens of this world, free yourself from the life of trying to do good, trying to overcome sin with the flesh. Surrender to Jesus today, allow him transform you through the study of the bible, and you will discover a new you. You will discover the strong grip of sin over your life is broken and you can now live to give God glory.
Living in right standing is only possible through Jesus. Make him the Lord of your life to achieve right standing.
Lord Jesus, I thank you for your works in my life. I thank you for you are the only one who can help me achieve a right standing before God. Please come transform me, i need you to take over the leadership of my life, be more God and savior. Amen
