To those who have believed on Jesus Christ for salvation. Our salvation doesnt depend on our perfection, its provided by His perfection. If I mess up Im still a child of God. As we are continually corrected by Him and walk in repentance, we abide in Christ by faith in Him not because were perfect. This is grace. We have His righteousness not our own. Righteousness comes because of our faith in Christ not our perfection. Our mistakes don’t take away our rightstanding with God. We are still credited righteousness by our faith in Chriist alone. Sons and daughters are corrected by the father continually. Justification by faith appears to be a hidden truth, to me its plain as day in the Bible. Were in the new covenant church, not the old covenant and not a mix between the two. Jesus fulfilled the law for us and paid for us to have the promises of God as we walk in the Spirit and not the flesh. Be led by the Spirit of truth.
And be found in him, 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—
Romans 4:4-5 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness
