Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and
peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the
Holy Ghost. Rom 15:3
Someday YOU will stand before God. You must have His RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Your eternity depends on it. You cannot work for it.
the Bible declares that one day you will die and then stand face to face
with God to be judged. "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, BUT
AFTER THIS THE JUDGMENT;" Hebrews 9:27. Nothing in your entire life could
be more important than to be ready for that day, for it will determine
whether you will spend eternity in heaven or hell.
This judgment will
be based on "righteousness", which means to be absolutely perfect and
without sin. The Bible says: "....he hath appointed a day, in the which HE
WILL JUDGE THE WORLD IN RIGHTEOUSNESS by that man whom he hath
ordained;..." Acts 17:31a. The man spoken of in this verse is Jesus
Christ. This means that your righteousness must match that of Jesus
Christ. Can you make it through your entire life without committing one
single sin? Jesus Christ did, and He is the one that you will be compared
with at your judgment.
NONE HAVE IT!
Nobody but Jesus Christ
could ever lead a life without one single sin. The Bible says, "FOR ALL
HAVE SINNED," Romans 3:23a. Nobody but Jesus Christ is righteous. "There
is NONE RIGHTEOUS, no, not one:" Romans 3:10b. If you claim to be
righteous, you are only deceiving yourself, and making God a liar. "If we
say that we have not sinned, WE MAKE HIM A LIAR." 1 John 1:10A. "If we say
that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." 1
WITHOUT IT YOU GO TO HELL
The Bible says: "Know ye
not that THE UNRIGHTEOUS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD?" 1
Corinthians 6:9a. If you're not going to heaven, that leaves only one
other place. "The wicked shall be TURNED INTO HELL...." Psalm 9:17a.
YOU CANNOT WORK FOR IT!
"NOT BY WORKS OF
RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH WE HAVE DONE, but according to his mercy he saved us,"
Titus 3:5a. If you could "earn" the righteousness of God, then Jesus
Christ would not have had to die on the cross.
Dear Soul, you cannot earn
the "righteousness of God" by leading a good life, trying to keep the ten
commandments, church membership, sacraments, baptism, or anything YOU
do. If you do something for it, then it is SELF-righteousness.
FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST IS
THE ONLY WAY TO GET IT.
Jesus Christ died and shed
his blood for your sins and purchased the "righteousness of God" for you.
You must stop trying to "earn" it, and put your faith in Jesus Christ to
receive it. "But TO HIM THAT WORKETH NOT, but BELIEVETH ON HIM that
justifieth the ungodly, HIS FAITH IS COUNTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS." Romans
4:5. "Even the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD which is BY FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST unto
all and upon all them THAT BELIEVE:" Romans 3:22a. Then you will not have
to fear the judgment day, because in your heart you know that you will "be
found in him, NOT HAVING MINE OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS, which is of the law
(keeping the 10 commandments), but THAT WHICH IS THROUGH THE FAITH OF
CHRIST, the RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH IS OF GOD BY FAITH:" Philippians 3:9.
Dear Soul, have you ever
broken even one of the ten commandments? If you have only told one small
"white" lie, or stolen one "little" object, you have broken all of the
law: "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point,
he is guilty of all." James 2:10. Jesus said that if you hate, you have
already committed murder in your heart (Matthew 5:21, 22). If you look
with lust upon another person, you have already committed adultery in your
heart. (Matthew 5:27, 28). If you have admitted to any of these sins, you
are a liar, a thief, an adulterer and a murderer by your own admission.
And that only covers four of the ten commandments.
WILL YOU TRUST COMPLETELY
IN JESUS CHRIST TO SAVE YOU?
"...without shedding of
blood is no remission (pardon)" of sins (Hebrews 9:22): "...For the life
of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to
make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an
atonement for the soul." (Leviticus 17:11) Jesus Christ is "...the Lamb
slain from the foundation of the world." Revelation 13:8.
"BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD, WHICH TAKETH
AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD." John 1:29
If you are convinced that
you have broken all of God's commandments and are a sinner condemned,
think about what the prodigal son said to himself: "And when he came to
himself, he said ...... I will arise and go to my father, and will say
unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, and am no
more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off,
his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck ,
and kissed him." Luke 15:17-20. Why not pray the same prayer as the
"If we confess our sins,
he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all
unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9
A place in heaven is open
to all but your response to the Lord Jesus Christ will determine whether
you will be there. Put your faith in the value of His blood shed for the
remission of sins ( Hebrews 9:22); and then you will be able to sing with
the redeemed in heaven and the love-song will be "unto Him that loved us
and washed us from our sins in His own blood." Revelation 1:5
"The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
