"The Lord has made known His salvation; His righteousness He has revealed in the sight of the nations." - Psalm 98 V2
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 6 V23
No one stands righteous of their own works before God because we all fall short of the holy standard of God. God is holy and just and He judges every sin with His righteous standard. Who then can be saved? God made the provision Himself for the sin of men and He died on the cross and all our sins were nailed on the cross. Those who believe and receive the grace of God, their sins are now forgiven and these will stand righteous before God as if they had not committed even a single sin. Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound. God did not close His eyes to the sin of His people but He Himself paid the price and we are now justified in His holy presence. The grace of our God is free to anyone who is willing to believe and receive. Those who reject will be judged by their works and no one will be justified by their works. Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
