Righteousness Through Faith.
Ya it is a dark world for most people, a life where is one is not able to steal food they will not be able to eat in some countries getting bread is a luxury. I don't even want to imagine what a life like that could be. People celebrate and rightfully so the joy of knowing that even though we fall short of Gods holy standard our sins are forgiven. Out salvation is possible because Jesus died for the sins of the world and in returns gives us righteousness. Jesus dies for our sins and he gives us righteousness. Who is this guy?
The sins that you have already committed, the sins that you have a hard time breaking away from Jesus is here to walk with us as we let go of the sins we carry. Jesus should be empowering us to be His light and love in this dark and hurting world.
21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. 22 This righteousness is given through faith in[a] Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
