Watch Ray Comfort present the Law to Chris and see how quickly it pierces his heart. When we are faced with the perfect standard of God that reveals our sinfulness, we have no choice but to reject righteousness or be justified by it through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. It is only the righteousness of Christ that makes us perfect in the sight of God, and it is the only way we can have access to the Father in heaven. Only God knows the heart of Chris and whether he repented, but if we take him at his word, the Law brought Chris to the cross of Jesus Christ in just a few minutes. How awesome is that?
Praise God for His perfect requirement that can only be met through the Son, and praise Him for His goodness in granting us repentance that leads to salvation!
Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, 26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. - Romans 3:19-26
