We do a "good deed", we even feel good about it, we even feel a little "RIGHTEOUS". Do we try to do "good deeds", whether for GOD or anyone else, in order to be FORGIVEN? If WE TRY to be RIGHTEOUS in living by the LAW, we WILL BE CONDEMNED BY THE LAW. We cannot do enough good to undo our sins. Do we understand that the purpose of BIBLICAL LAW is to make known what sin is? Therefore, we can only have RIGHTEOUSNESS AND FORGIVENESS as a FREE GIFT by the Mercy of GOD. Romans 3:19-23; so what do we have to do? Our FAITH (agreeing with the Character and Promises of GOD) in JESUS CHRIST and our BELIEVING (acting upon that FAITH) in JESUS CHRIST brings us into our RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM. In this LOVING RELATIONSHIP we are taken BEYOND THE LAW WHERE "GOOD DEEDS" ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH. AMEN.
