Reflections of Righteousness

If you’ve ever been in love you realize the most wonderful part of it is being remade in the eyes and mind and heart of your Beloved.

Scars, physical, emotional, maybe even mental, that made you see yourself as flawed are nowhere to be seen. Or better yet, actually seem to endear you to the one who loves you.

Christianity is something like that. Paul explains the limitations of the Law in Romans chapters 3-4. In our modern terms it’s like seeing flaws we can never fix in ourselves and understanding that GOD gives us the faith to know JESUS loves us in spite of them and has lived, died & lives again so we can trust His perfection rather than trusting our own.

The Law is a mirror showing us our imperfections. We cannot perfect ourselves but faith believes GOD perfects us through JESUS. Romans 3-4
