Prior to the New Covenant, there had been years and years of people trying to establish their own righteousness in front of God through their own works and by trying to keep the Law. But in the gospel, a righteousness is revealed that no one can earn or maintain through their own efforts. God's very own righteousness is revealed, and it's revealed as something that can only be attained as a gift. To try to establish your own righteousness by what you do (by your "good works" or law keeping) is to be "ignorant of God's righteousness" (Romans 10:3). Righteousness is a gift, not something you earn!

Here's this week's GIG-Bite, a quick sample of this week's program.
