#297 - Joseph Prince - Blessings Flow Through Grace - Part 2
I have heard time and again, even theologians, professors of Bible schools, making statements of righteousness like we need to be more righteous. You cannot be more righteous. You can be more holy but cannot be more righteous.
How are you righteous? You're born again. When you're born again, you were born righteous in God's eyes, amen. You were born that way. Praise God.
When grace came, it brought us straightaway into maturity. Do you know you inherit everything that God has? Huios, sons, mature sons.
Israel said, "What's wrong with saying, 'All that God commands us,'" at the foot of Mount Sinai, "we can do it"? I mean, it sounds good. It sounds noble, isn't it? But it's actually pride in God's eyes. They're stirring their flesh. They're trusting their effort. They should say, "God, if you give us your laws, your laws are holy. We cannot keep it. It's by your grace. Bring us home into the Promised Land by your grace".
