We are Righteous!

Hey Girls!
Yesterday at our church service my pastor talked about righteousness. As soon as we accept Jesus into our heart, we are completely righteous with God. There isn't anything more we could do to become more righteous. Once we are Christians, we can walk through this world guiltless because Jesus took away all our sins.

It is done and taken care of!
Lots of Christians go through life trying to get righteous by doing things like going to church, serving others, and spending time with God. Sometimes we think, "I can't pray for this certain area in my life to because o gosh I didn't have a quiet time this morning!" This mindset is completely wrong. He died on the cross for us and all of our sins- past, present, and future.

Before we accepted Jesus into our life, we were completely unrighteous. However, we are now RIGHTEOUS WITH GOD! How amazing is that? It's by the work of the cross that we are declared righteous.

Titus 3:5
He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit,

Romans 3:20
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.

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

Romans 9:30

What then shall we say? That the Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have obtained it, a righteousness that is by faith;

Your sister in Christ,
