Righteousness Cannot Be Earned!

It took me a while to get this, but now I do: The only thing better than right DOING is right BEING. On our best day, we could never do enough righteous acts to make ourselves worthy of God's blessings. There was a time I thought I could. I thought that If I didn't sleep around, told only the truth, attended church, paid my tithes, left the drugs & alcohol alone etc, etc, I would QUALIFY for God's blessings and secure my seat in heaven. Truth is, we can never DO enough to make ourselves worthy. That's what Jesus did. When He died for us, He BECAME our righteousness. We just have to accept Him into our lives and God immediately sees us a righteous. This type righteousness cannot be earned. It can only be received as a gift through salvation. We can never DO enough to BE in the position with God that Christ has made us. We just have to believe it.
