To him who is able to keep you from falling and to
present you before his glorious presence without fault.
You wonder if you are good enough to go to heaven.
That’s why you have to depend on his righteousness, not yours. “For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed” (Rom. 1:17). Not a righteousness of your own, “but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God” (Phil. 3:9).
When you responded in faith to the gospel, God declared you righteous.
You were not made righteous, but declared righteous.
The righteousness of Christ was “credited” to your account (Rom. 4:24). “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Cor. 5:21).
Good enough to go to heaven?
Going to heaven because of his grace?
Grace meets you where you are,
but doesn’t leave you where it finds you.
