A Promise For You From Bible Promises: [04/MAY/2019]
Topic: Clothed In His Righteousness
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. – 2 Corinthians 5:21.
Read: 2 Corinthians 5:17-21
The Bible is filled with numerous promises of the ever faithful God and the reality of these promises coming to pass in the lives of those it was given to. The coming of Jesus Christ to the world to die for the sins of man brought perfection to everything God initially created but was deformed by Satan as a result of the fall of man from grace. Man lost his position (given by God) to Satan, but Jesus the grace of God personified came and restored it to man. We were no people to God before but now through the ministry of reconciliation Jesus came to establish, we’re now His people – His treasure.
Now, the Bible says we’re the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. This is awesome to hear and believe. But you see, that Christ has done everything for us does not mean those things will fall upon us like a pack of card, we must deliberately lay hold on what He has done for us and follow all the principles. To those who are in Christ Jesus, we’re clothed in His righteousness, God sees us as righteous through Jesus’ righteousness. We are clothed in Christ righteousness and we must continue to be clothed with Christ, lest we loss our standing with God. To those who are yet to surrender to Jesus, your righteousness is as a filthy rag before God, God sees your sin and will reward you accordingly. Therefore, you must change that self-righteousness (fake) for the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ (original).
Bible Promises Thought: When you play your part, you enjoy all the promises of God concerning your life and family.
