God deals with each person justly. No man can substitute for the other, except Christ who died in our place that through His grace we live, even though our souls have sinned. He bore our wickedness on the cross and transferred His righteousness to us. Without Christ, we will have to face God on our own merit . Who can claim to be righteous before God on their own merit? The most righteous acts according to the scriptures, are like filthy rags before Him. However by His grace, I AM righteous. That grace teaches righteous living. I trust that your soul shall live through Him who bore our transgressions.
