GODS RIGHTEOUSNESS OUR SALVATION
Of course God’s good
pleasure is to see his righteousness being manifested in your life through
faith in Jesus Christ. It is not that he did it because we loved him, no! He
did it because of his love for us, even while we were yet sinners (Romans 5:8).
That is why the Holy Bible said:
“Herein is love, not that we loved God, but
that he loved us and sent his son to be the propitiation for our sins. We love
him, because he first loved us,
1 John 4:10.19.
As you can see God first
loved us and gave his only begotten son as a gift of his righteousness to us,
no wonder Jesus Christ said:
“No man can come to
me except the father which hath sent me draw him and I will
raise him up at the last day. It is written in the Prophets (book of Jeremiah
31:31-34). And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath
heard and hath learned of the father cometh unto me “John 6:44-45. It is for
this reason that the scriptures said “for whom he did foreknow, he also
did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his son, that he might be the
firstborn among many brethren.
