Mistaken Confidence

Mistaken Confidence

Romans 4:4-8 Read Here!
1 Peter 1:18-19 “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:”

A successful business man made this statement: “Almost every religion talks about a saviour coming. When you look in the mirror in the morning, you’re looking at the savior. Nobody else is going to save you but yourself.”

We as Christians do not agree with that worldview because it is in direct contradiction to the Gospel. The Bible teaches the exact opposite of such a self-sufficient confidence. The apostle Peter said of Jesus: “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” {Acts 4:12}

In Romans 4, we have forthright teaching that it is by faith, not by what we do, that a relationship with God can be established : “To him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness” v.5 And we read in Romans 3:28, “We conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from his deeds of the law.”” By God’s acceptance of sinful selves.

WE CANNOT SAVE OURSELVES. We can be SAVED ONLY BY GOD’S SON, JESUS, who lived a sinless life, dies as the perfect sacrifice for our sins, and rose from the grave. —Vernon Grounds

You can’t earn your way into heaven
The wages of sin is death.
Jesus is longing to save you from sin;
Don’t wait till you draw your last breath. –Hess
