If You Trust Christ



Christ is the only source
of the faith that trusts
him to forever be righteous
for us in our stead for salvation:

For by grace are ye saved through faith;
AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES:
IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD:
(Ephesians 2:8 KJV)

Therefore as by the offense of one
judgment came upon
all men to condemnation;
EVEN SO BY THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF ONE
THE FREE GIFT CAME UPON ALL MEN
UNTO JUSTIFICATION OF LIFE.
(Romans 5:18)

If you are trusting Christ
to be righteous for us
forever in our stead for salvation,
it is because Christ has given you that faith,
and so he counts you as though
as righteous as he,
and so he has given you eternal life.
Because you are trusting Christ to be
our Righteous Substitute forever
for our salvation,
you are not trusting for salvation
in your repentant, surrendered,
baptized, regenerated, enduring self,
or in any other personal
supposed "righteousness" at all.
