SAVED BY GRACE

SAVED BY GRACE

 

PROVERBS 24:16  “for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes”

 

 

ROMANS 4:3 AMP  “For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed in (trusted, relied on) God, and it was credited to his account as righteousness (right living, right standing with God).”

 

2 CORINTHIANS 5:21  “He made Christ who knew no sin to [judicially] be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we would become the righteousness of God [that is, we would be made acceptable to Him and placed in a right relationship with Him by His gracious lovingkindness]. In ROMANS 4 Abraham and David are referred to as righteous.  Both of these men made mistakes but through their faith in God they were counted as righteous or in the right standing with God.  Therefore, when we believe in Christ, we become righteous or put in another way we are in the right state (relationship) with God. JAMES 3:2 says we all stumble often. Because we believe in Christ, we are righteous, and even if the righteous fall seven times, we rise again.  The Blood of Christ cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:7.

 

ROMANS 8:11 says that the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead lives in us, therefore we have resurrection power in us. That’s why even if we fall, we can get up again, stand and overcome.
