We can begin each day with the deeply encouraging realization,
I’m accepted by God,
not on the basis of my personal performance,
but on the basis of the infinitely perfect righteousness of Jesus Christ.
Jerry Bridges in
Not because I’ve studied my Bible everyday.
Not because I’ve given my money away to missions.
Not because I’m a good wife or mother.
Not because I go to church.
Not because I ….
Just because of Christ’s righteousness.
