Our standing with God is based on His Righteousness, not our own. If you wish to base your standing with God on your own righteousness, perfection is required- not from this day forward, but from the day you were born to the day of your death.
We need Grace and Peace!
Grace from God - unmerited favor from our Creator, our Savior
Peace from God -
An "accord" that brings peace between two hostile "nations"; our standing with God either was or is hostile, and we need peace. AND we need peace of mind, knowing we are in right standing with God through Jesus Christ
We need this Grace and Peace multiplied and it happens through KNOWLEDGE
Knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord
May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. - 2 Peter 1:2
True knowledge of God and His redemptive plan demands a reaction- there is no neutrality- action is demanded!
Either lay down your "weapons" at the feet of Jesus, plead His forgiveness, and trust in Him alone to save you from the Wrath to come.
Remain in rebellion and continue to store up Wrath for yourself for the day of Wrath
Inaction is, by default, the latter.
