In the Gospel

Galatians 2:16-21
Yet we know that a person is made right with God by faith in Jesus Christ, not by obeying the law. and we have believe in Christ Jesus, so that we might be made right with God because of our faith in Christ, not because we have obeyed the law. For no one will ever be made right with God by obeying the law.
But suppose we seek to be made right with God through faith in Christ and then we are found guilty because we have abandoned the law. Would that mean that Christ has led us into sin? Absolutely not!
Rather I am a sinner if I rebuild the old system of the law I already tore down.
For when I tried to keep the law, it condemned me. So I died to the law- I stopped trying to meet all its requirements- so that I might live for God.
My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by  trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
I do not treat the grace of God as meaningless. For if keeping the law could make us right with God, then there was no need for Christ to die.

There is a song a good friend of ours Neil Silverburg wrote called "In the Gospel" and part of it goes:

"In the Gospel, I have found all that I need..."

It's so true! I am found righteous by means of GRACE (the Gospel) and I do not take that for granted or add one more step to it!
