Sermon Update Reflections

In the sermon this week we talked about how we should reflect God's grace and goodness. Many of us may look at ourselves in a mirror, and feel we are peering into one of those Circus mirrors. We see ourselves, but we see ourselves distorted from who we really are. We may see ourselves as ugly and imperfect. That is not how God sees us, he always sees us as perfect.

  1. Good post pastor.

    We are (not will be) the righteousness of God in Christ.

    That Paul refers to the gift of righteousness is also clear from 2 Corinthians 5:21. God made Christ to be sin, even though he was without sin, so that believers would "become the righteousness of God." The meaning of God's righteousness is explicated by verse 19, which refers to forgiveness of sins.
