Happy Friday. Using Max Lucado again this morning. I think you will be inspired and uplifted. Have a blessed day. Judy
God is Righteous
The Bible says in 1 Peter 3:18, “For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.” Yes, righteousness is what God is—and yes, righteousness is what we are not! And, yes, righteousness is what God requires. But Romans 3:21 tells us, “God has a way to make people right with Him.”
In the 23rd Psalm, David said it like this, “He leads me in the path of righteousness.” And Daniel 9:14 declares, “Our God is right in everything He does.”
The path of righteousness is a narrow, winding trail up a steep hill. At the top of the hill is a cross. At the base of the cross are countless bags full of innumerable sins. Get the point? Calvary is the compost pile for guilt. Wouldn’t you like to leave yours there as well?
