Many people are
carrying around a burden that they would rather not think about: the
burden of the sins they have committed. What is God's answer
to this problem? What can we do so that we can finally leave
this behind us?
If the forgiveness
of your sins somehow depended on your good deeds you could never
know when you have done enough of the right things. God
doesn't want you to live with this kind of insecurity. He has
provided a way for you to be forgiven and to know it 100%.
If you believe that
Jesus never committed any sins and that by giving His own life on
the cross in your place He opened the way to heaven for you, you
will be forgiven. Your part is to trust in His goodness, His
righteousness, not your own. When you accept the forgiveness
that God gives you through Jesus, God does something amazing in your
heart by the
Holy Spirit and you become
born again. Because you are trusting in the righteousness of
Jesus the Messiah, you do not have to wonder whether His
righteousness will be accepted by God. In fact, His
righteousness is made your righteousness!
