This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. Rom 3:22
Paul when he wrote to the Romans, he answered the toughest question that haunts us. Answer to that question defines our destiny. Question: How can we be righteous? Can we ever have right standing with God? Guilt and shame has become partners of many, as they have tried living good and has failed. Can our works ever make us meet the mark of Almighty God.
God with infinite knowledge knowing our weakness, has made a wonderful way to achieve righteousness. Believe in Jesus Christ, confess our sins and surrender to savior, that single act of faith makes us righteous and changes our lives for ever. The deliverance that comes as a result of right standing with Almighty has great bearing of us and the world.
Father Lord, I am a sinner, I believe Jesus died for my sins and rose again. Wash me with the blood of Jesus, anoint me with Holy Spirit. Amen.
