Topic: God’s Righteousness In Christ Jesus [16/06/2017]

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 Cor 5:11-21

It’s not possible to be righteous and live a holy life in this pervert and godless world; perfection is not in human but divine, this and more you hear many people say. Well, they’re all correct because they believe, to live a righteous life depends on one’s effort or one’s good works.  The Bible says that, Noah was a just man and perfect in his generation. That was the era of law. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 5:48, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect”. If it were not possible, He wouldn’t have mentioned it.

What makes it possible for us to be righteous in this unrighteous world is not based on our efforts or good works, but the finished work of Jesus on the cross. God made Jesus to bear our sin so that through His death and resurrection, we will become His righteousness. When God looks at you and I, what He sees is not us but Jesus our righteousness. We are the righteousness of God through Christ finished work. Until you become a new man made of the Spirit of Christ and reconciled back to God, old things will still prevail over you. Accept Jesus into your life today


* Father, as I accept Jesus today, empower me to live a righteous and holy life in which without, no man shall see You in Jesus Mighty Name
