THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD 1

Rom 3:21-22
But now apart from the law the righteousness of God (which is attested by the law and the prophets) has been disclosed - 22 namely, the righteousness of God through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction [NET]

After Nkechi gave her life to Christ and received the Holy Spirit, she realized that it was difficult for her to go back to a lifestyle of sin. If she did, it felt like she was violating herself and destroying her peace. As she began to learn more of the word, she realized that she had received a new nature that was absolutely righteous. This nature did not enjoy sin and this was why she felt so dirty and guilty whenever she sinned.

Unfortunately, there are many that profess faith in Christ Jesus and claim the righteousness of Christ but live in a manner that is unrighteous. Some have done this so much that their consciences have been seared with hot iron; they are no more sensitive to the signals of their regenerated spirits. These signals make them know when they are doing something contrary so that they will repent.

Righteousness is not an idea, it is not a title. Righteousness is an action word. It is a way of life that is visible, and even the law cannot condemn this way of life (see Gal 5:21-23). Its standards are higher than that of the Law because it is produced by transformation of heart, not merely adoption of laws.

Go into today remembering that righteousness is an action word. Jesus came to empower you to walk in His righteousness. This righteousness is produced by faith in Him.

Confession: I am walking in a manner worthy of the Lord. I am pleasing Him in all respects (see Col 1:10) in Jesus name.
-Pas SD Abraham

YBP:Psalms 36-38
