For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.

Romans 5:17

To be sincere does not mean you are righteous.

In your walk with God, you need to know that there is a huge difference between between moral life and righteousness.

Sometimes we are tempted to think that God should look at our moral life and count it for righteousness.

But the truth is that no matter how good your moral life is or how sincere you are, it will never amount to righteousness.

We have quite a good number if people who are not righteous. There are people who do not steal, tell lies fornicate, commit adultery or perform any other act but they are not righteous.

God doesn't not hear and answer your prayers because you are sincere or have a good moral life, he answers because you are righteous because of Jesus and your righteousness is the righteousness of Jesus.

The Bible says in Romans 5:18 Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men.

Righteousness is what gives you a right standing in the presence of God. Your moral life cannot give you a write standing with God.

Many people out of ignorance pray and cry to God making mention of their good moral life. This is because they are not aware of the truth of God's word.

Never use your moral life as a currency. It is your faith, your faith in his righteousness- that produces results.

Having been declared righteous, you have peace with God. (Romans 5:1) Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

This did not happen based on your moral life or personal effort. It happened because he gave you his righteousness.

You cannot impress God with your good works. Jesus already impressed him on your behalf.

So when you please your case with God, it should not be based on your works, but on the basis of your right standing with God.

Never think you can impress God with your self - righteousness.
Moral life is good, but it does not guarantee eternal life.
