Right?

Rom 1:16  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.

17    For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

God is right. He sets things right, He does right, and He is right. But do you believe that God is right about you?

That He simply loves you, wants to lavish love upon you, wants to give you entrance into eternal life.

That, though He was angry at sin, His anger has been appeased by the blood sacrifice of Jesus.  And having done that, He is no longer angry.  Is that right?  And He has made you right with Him.  Is that right?

  • Are you always trying to get right?  Or can simply believe that you are right through the right-ness that is of God by the blood of His Son?

Rom 3:21  But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets,

22    even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference;

23    for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

24    being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,  (NKJ)

Rom 4:5   But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness,

6      just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works:

7      “Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered;

8      Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.” (NKJ)

—10 How then was it accounted? While he was circumcised, or uncircumcised? Not while circumcised, but while uncircumcised.

11    And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had while still uncircumcised, that he might be the father of all those who believe, though they are uncircumcised, that righteousness might be imputed to them also,

12    and the father of circumcision to those who not only are of the circumcision, but who also walk in the steps of the faith which our father Abraham had while still uncircumcised.

13    For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.

14    For if those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise made of no effect,

15    because the law brings about wrath; for where there is no law there is no transgression.

16    Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all  (NKJ)
