How to Be Made Right with God

Description

Although religion and your pride will tell you differently, there are no steps to take or works to do that will make you right with God.

It can’t be done. That’s right. There are no steps that you can take, or works that you can do that will make you right with God

Religion and your pride will tell you differently.

Both beckon you to follow all types of rules and regulations. they promise righteousness as the reward for obedience.

That’s the problem. We can’t live up to the rules and the regulations. Have you tried the Ten Commandments? How well did you do?

Here is the truth. Law condemns, even our best efforts. It’s a harsh, humbling reality. As the bible declares, “Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin” (Romans 3:20 NIV).

The law screams out that we are sinners, that we are not right with God. The religious rules and regulations condemn as well.

We fall short.

But…

We are justified, or made right , freely by God’s grace (Romans 3:24).

Righteousness is a gift. It can’t be earned, only received.

Jesus did the work. He is the One who makes us right. What we couldn’t do for ourselves, He did.

How can you be made right with God? Receive the gift of righteousness by faith.

If you have, you are right in God’s sight.
