From your Pastor;

          But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, whom became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption...                           
                                                              1 Corinthians 1:30

           What is our righteousness? According to this verse a basic lesson which we must learn.   Jesus Christ himself is our righteousness. In providing for our salvation God solved the problem of righteousness and sin.  Through the righteousness of Jesus, God can forgive our sins and allow us to come before Him. Forgiveness is like the taking of a bath, righteousness is like the putting on of the robe. God dresses us so that we may come before Him. 
         This law of forgiveness did not happen by chance. God developed the way to forgive our sin while keeping His laws in place. It is called GRACE. God’s grace means all the laws of God are kept intact and yet men may be saved. In other words sinful men may be saved while God remains righteous. This plan leaves men speechless. This plan leaves even the devil speechless. Satan cannot accuse God of being unrighteous, unfair, or bias in His plan for saving mankind. No one can accuse God of being unfair either way, when it comes to grace. The only response that man should have to this masterpiece is “Thank You, Lord, I accept”
     O there will be those who doubt, who refuse, and who withdraw from God, but one thing is true. They will never be able to say that God was not being fair, just and willing to save them.
           Is Jesus your righteousness today? You can have it, He is willing to give it. The choice is yours.
