day no. 12,776: by faith or by froth?

John 5:44-47

44 How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God? 45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one who accuses you: Moses, on whom you have set your hope. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. 47 But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?”

The very "goodness" that many people assume about themselves is the very thing that will accuse them before the Father of failure.

Good people do not go to Heaven. Moses and the Law God handed down by him will guarantee that. The very thing in which people place their hope is the thing that will destroy them and accuse them before the Father.

How tragic the scenario that finds one rejecting revelation in order to cling with confidence to speculation.

Do not set your hope in what you have done or what you have not done or never would do. That claim will itself condemn you. The boast of your tongue will be the evidence against you. You are leaning on a sharp stick. You will get stuck.

Jesus is the end of the Law.

Receive righteousness that is by faith.
Reject righteousness  that is by froth.
