Everyday He 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,” that’s it! Hey, this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. Words of truth from Philippians 3:9. Be like Jesus. I be like Paul so MANY times.
In the beginning 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. Paul had to come to that truth, that all we need to come to, that his sin was inherited and only by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ could cleanse his heart and wash away his sins. By God’s grace, He sent His only Son to pay the full price of our sins. Believe and receive what Christ has done for you and be clothed in the righteousness of God and never again be enslaved by sin. Oh, how free and hopeful this is…everyday.
