Quotes (402)

There is nothing in a man that causes God to justify him, including his repentance and faith. Repentance does not pay for sin. A criminal’s remorse for his crime does not satisfy the just demands of the law. Neither does faith pay for sin! Only the blood of Jesus can pay for sin! Justification is based on the blood of Christ.

  1. Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
    Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
    The words of these people reveal that they thought their works merited favor with God that’s why they ask the Lord, Why. A true Christian knows it’s all of Christ and not any righteous deed they have done.
    In fact the christian knows how unworthy they are of the grace shown to them.
    My hope is in Christ alone. He is my hope.
    Don’t trust in your faith or repentance because it’s misplaced and not in Christ.
    I trust in the worthy Lord and His blood to forgive me of my sins.

  2. I have been dealing with this in my personal walk with God, and am blessed to hear it said again. I am glad that it is not by my faith, because some days I am not so faithful. Nor by my belief, because unbelief leads to disobedience and I am not always obedient to His Word. But because of Jesus, God’s beautiful Son, I am what I am – that is a new creature being kept by His power. Great God.
