But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. Romans 3:21, 22 NIV
What a wonderful journey life is! We usually try so hard to make things right and yet we find we are powerless to change most things. Righteousness is an amazing word which comes from God. It means to be declared free from any condemnation or guilt because of our sin, forever and free from our sins authority or power over us. But now a righteousness from God has been made known. BUT NOW, is there two words that are more revealing than these? Right is the midst of our sadness, frustrations and failures God has found a way to declare us righteous and give us a new nature that looks like being born again (John 3:3 NIV). This declaration is the life and power of His Grace in Jesus the Christ! Martyn Lloyd Jones – “Would you like to know for certain at this moment whether you are a Christian or not? I suggest that this is one of the best tests. “But now,” is there something within you that makes you say, thank God! Is there a “But now” in your experience?” This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. Today may you live in the life that has been declared righteous by God because of your faith in Jesus Christ! Enjoy!
