We are all guilty sinners. Left on our own we will be judged and sentenced to what the bible calls the lake of fire, a terrible judgment. where we will face the FULL wrath of God.
What a frightening prospect! Yet God in a great demonstration of His love and grace sent His son to the cross in our behalf, so that we could avoid this terrible fate. We can not approach God with our own merits but must trust and believe in what Christ accomplished for us on the Cross. It is through what Christ accomplished that we are declared righteous.
God justifies and declares righteous the sinner who believes in Jesus Christ. Have you trusted in Christ? Will you accept God’s free gift today?
Romans 3:26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
2 Cor 5:21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
