Galatians 3.24 "We are justified by faith." When we come to Jesus and repent of our sins it is just as if we never sinned. By His blood we are cleansed. By His Holy Spirit, daily prayer and bible reading we grow in Him. We are all sinners. No one is better than anyone else! By faith in Christ we are set free from sin.
One star may shine brighter than another. This is because God makes it that way. One person may shine brighter than you but we are all important to God. Equally loved by Him. Galatians 2.11 "Knowing that a man is not justified by works of the law but by faith in Christ Jesus."
We are righteous before God because of our relationship in Jesus not our own good work! We will be judged by what we do in relation to Jesus, whether we receive or reject Him. Not by our own works ! We are saved by faith in Jesus Christ alone!
His Spirit in us brings forth fruits of His righteousness to everlasting life. Our own good works bring forth fruit of decay. Only Jesus can make you right with God! His blood atones for our sins. His blood paid the price for our sins. "No one is good but God alone." Matthew 19.17
Don't lose the wonder of Gods amazing grace! Grace is love which is not earned or deserved. But love which is unconditional! We can offer nothing to God apart from what He has already given us. Our love, our lives, our talents all come from Him.
Live in His love. Serve Him because you love Him not for reward from Him or praise from man. Romans 13.10 "Love is the fulfilment of the law." Jesus is the fulfilment of the law. Galatians 2.21 "I do not set aside the grace of God. For if righteousness comes through the law (our own efforts or religion) then Christ died in vain."
