Everyday Jesus IS Enough
“Not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith.” Words of truth from Philippians 3:9. Be like Jesus. I be like Paul so MANY times.
Paul was a Pharisee of the Pharisees and outwardly keeping the Law of Moses, self-righteous with a religious mind-set. Paul’s righteousness was works-based righteousness, but only true and cleansing righteousness comes from God’s work on the cross where we’re made right. Paul had to come to that truth, that all we need to come to, that his sin was inherited and Only the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ could cleanse his heart and wash away his sins. It is only through the grace of God that He sent His only begotten Son to pay the full price of our sins, so that simply by believing in Him we would be clothed in righteousness of God and never again be enslaved by sin. This by putting ou faith in Christ…everyday.
