Believers today are in danger of living as if Christ died for nothing. All that Paul fought for in his ministry is in danger every time we act as though “being good” makes us righteous. Paul reiterates this in Galatians 2:21, I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing. We are in danger of living a life as though Christ died for nothing. If we place ourselves in a position of comparing ourselves against the rest of the world through our ability to act righteously, we will fail and gain nothing. Christ alone makes us righteous, and until we make the comparison about Him, we will always be seen as no better than the rest of the world.
