Verses: Romans 3:22-24 (NIV)
This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
One of the attributes of God is that He is holy, so holy that we must be holy to have a relationship with Him. Fear not! Thankfully, as believers, we have Christ. Our belief in Him has cleansed us of those things that have prevented us from having a relationship with God. Nothing that we have done is beyond the redemptive power of Christ! Blessed are we, who by God’s grace, have been justified by Christ Jesus.
