This is the Gospel-

That Jesus Christ has a perfect record, and when we believe in Him, he gives it to us. he lived the life we should have lived, and died the death we should have died in our place, so that when we believe our sins are pardoned and “we are counted righteous in his sight”.

This is the source of my confidence, fulfillment, comfort, opportunity to serve, happiness, deepest foundation.

When God sees me, he sees his son Jesus standing up for me and he says, “She’s good! Get you to Heaven!” And when I get there it will be even more beautiful and wonderful than I could ever dream.

If marriage is not the fulfillment, and career and success and money are not the fulfillment, nor would be travel, writing, exercising, being pretty or having nice things. No.

“I will rest in the righteousness if Christ and learn to rejoice in it. Then I can look at males or careers and say, “What makes me beautiful to God is Jesus, not these things” -unknown

Therefore since we have been justified through faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ…And our hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out int our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. Romans 5:1-2,5
