Christ Is the End

Gary Wilkerson

We cannot achieve righteousness through our own efforts but only through faith in Christ. Many people mistakenly believe that while we are justified by grace, we must sanctify ourselves through zealous pursuit of the law. However, this self-righteous striving only leads to anger, pride, judgmentalism and jealousy. True righteousness and sanctification come from continually depending on God's mercy and grace through the gospel, not through human will or exertion. Christ is the end of the law and puts an end to our fleshly striving, setting us free to walk in His power and glory.
