Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and my prayer to God is for the people of Israel to be saved. 2 I know what enthusiasm they have for God, but it is misdirected zeal. 3 For they don’t understand God’s way of making people right with himself. Refusing to accept God’s way, they cling to their own way of getting right with God by trying to keep the law. 4 For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given. As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God. Romans 10:1-4 NLT
God has a way of making people right with himself. We can’t just come to God our own way but we need to come His way. We need to humble ourselves and submit to his ways. There are many teachings out there about many roads lead to God but God has one way of making people right in his sight and it is by believing in His son, Jesus.
For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God (righteous NKJV), and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. Romans 10:9 NLT
Righteousness comes by believing in your heart. When we believe in Jesus as the sacrifice for our sins we become righteous in Gods eyes or we become right with God. We are in right standing with God because of everything Jesus did not because of our works good or bad. There are many roads to the mall, the grocery store and your house BUT there is only a narrow path that leads to God, creator of heaven and earth, and this is Jesus Christ.
