I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. Romans 1:16-17
Understanding you have God’s divine approval on your life sets you free from the sense of rejection, inadequacy or inferiority. You are confident you have God’s approval. You are free to receive God’s best blessings and to follow His plan for your life. This confidence in God sets you free from constantly seeking approval from others.
One of the most misunderstood subjects in the Bible is righteousness. The Gospel of Christ is a revelation of the righteousness of God. The center of the Gospel reveals the righteousness of God. I call righteousness a radical revelation, a revolutionary revelation. It is a reality that is produced for us by the Lord Jesus Christ.
Confession: The Gospel is the good news. It is a weapon of might that begins with faith and produces faith. God has made me righteous as He is . I am right with God! I am whole and set free!

Very insightful. Thank you Rev Hankins!
