Welcome to our service today. It is great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee.
Someone sent me a quote this week that said “If you pursue righteousness you will find happiness. If you pursue happiness you will never find righteousness”. Food for thought!
One definition of righteousness is simply, right standing with God. Righteousness is the condition of being in right relationship with the Lord. This can only happen through total faith and dependence upon Christ. It comes when we confess our sin, repent from it and ask God to forgive us. There is no other way and there is nothing we can add to our faith to obtain right relationship with the Lord. Some people believe that it is through our actions that we become righteous. Nothing could be further from the truth. There is a relationship between our actions and our right standing with God but we are not made righteous by what we do. Righteousness is a gift that comes from the Lord to those who accept what Jesus has done for them by faith.
With love & blessings,
