When We Cling to Jesus We are Made Right!

Righteousness Through Faith 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,

If you live in the country your next closest neighbor might be a mile down the road with a large field in between your houses. That “space” sets you apart. The closest neighbor to the parsonage is about 20 feet out the back door! Not much space. Paul says that the righteousness of God is set apart from the Law like those two farm houses. They are completely and totally separate! Instead, the righteousness of God is found in Jesus Christ alone! That righteousness, which is the state of being innocent and just before God, is received through faith. When we cling to Jesus we are made “right.”
