A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD

Philippians 3:9

“And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:”


“Not having my own righteousness”Many people have many different ideas how they can be righteous enough to get into heaven when they die.One such thought is God will put all our good deeds on a balance (scale) and all our bad deeds on the other side and whichever way the balance goes is where we will spend eternity.My friends that is not what the Bible teaches.Our salvation does not depend on what sort of deeds we do.It depends completely on Christ and what He has already done for us through His death on the cross.It is God Himself who erases the record of our sins---then He enables us to live as a Christian should live.It is all available through faith in Christ.Jesus is the only way we can go to heaven.

If you will receive Christ, He will receive you
