Righteousness isn’t something to achieve its something you ACCEPT!
Once we get that ACCEPTANCE Alone make Righteous, we Grow The Goodness of God as it expands exponentially and Radically taking our thoughts and souls to The Love beyond compare!
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”” – Romans 1:16-17
The reason Paul used the word “ashamed” is that during his time, just like now many call Grace-Full Christians lazy and all sorts of names because GraceFull Christianity is about Faith but religious Christianity is about the god of MORE! Paul is simply saying, All righteousness comes from Christ Alone and learning to Rest in Him IS having Faith in what He Finished on the cross and through His Ressurection.
Meditate on this – “NOTHING I do makes me righteous, ONLY what HE DID, makes me complete!” The greater you grasp this the Greater you see His Goodness And His Radical Love for you! This is what’s meant by “He must Increase and I must decrease!!
God Is Love!
