You are right in his sight

For I am not ashamed of this good news about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes, the Jews first and also the Gentile. This GOOD NEWS TELLS US HOW GOD MAKES US RIGHT IN HIS SIGHT.
This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the scriptures says 'It is through faith that a righteous person has life. Romans 1:16-17 (NLT)

The meaning of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ is 'too good to be true' news.
Think about it, in the verse above we are told God makes us right in his sight.

You simply believe it. It is so simple a lot of believers struggle to understand it, they still go about like the Jews trying to establish their righteousness. 

You and I were heading for hell but Jesus paid the price of redemption and saved us and when we then place our faith in Christ and in what he did then we become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus 2 Corinthians 5:21. It's too good to be true!

Each time God looks at you, he sees Jesus and this is why the bible says there is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus for the law of the spirit of life in CHRIST JESUS has made me free (Romans 8:1-2) not because you are perfect but because you are in Christ Jesus.

This is a powerful truth that is very liberating. However if you don't know this or fully understand the work of grace which Jesus wrought for you, the enemy can keep you in condemnation. Each time something not too pleasant happens to you he can quickly remind you of your past and that you are paying for your sins. He can tell you the Lord is not pleased with you and you should 'do' more, truth is our performances are nothing, they won't score you brownie points before God.

No man can ever be good as all our righteousness are like filthy rags. If you keep all the commandments and you are guilty of one, bible says you are guilty of all. You might not commit adultery, murder someone but what about your inner thoughts that no one can see or the words you spoke about someone else.

To be acceptable in the sight of the Father is to simply place faith in his son Jesus Christ and not by 'doing' things. Of course grace doesn't say continue living in sin, rather when you understand the power of grace that is available to you, you simply depend on it to live a holy life which was why Apostle Paul said in Galatians 2:20, the life I live now, I live by the faith of the son of God who loved me and gave his life for me.

God is pleased with you if you are a believer and you are right in his sight.
