Christ has been made our righteousness

But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption (1 Corinthians 1:30).

What we just read is one of the most powerful truths revealed to us in the Word of God. It’s so huge: Christ has been made our righteousness. Your righteousness is the righteousness of Jesus Christ; you didn’t earn it; you were born with it when you were born into Christ.

Something powerful that the righteousness of God does in and for you is that it makes you a master. Righteousness-consciousness gives you dominion in life and over circumstances. The Prophet Isaiah revealed this when he said in Isaiah 54:17, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.”

Your righteousness is of the Lord. This is what Paul referred to in Philippians 3:9 when he said, “And be found in him, not having my own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.” Hallelujah!

Every so often, boldly declare, “Christ is my righteousness!” Never allow Satan to deceive you into believing you’re not righteous enough for God’s blessings. You’re as righteous as Jesus is righteous since He is your righteousness. It’s His righteousness that matters, and that’s what you have.

Thank God for the righteousness of Jesus Christ: God’s blessing and gift to all men! Romans 5:17 declares, “For if by one man’s offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ).” You’ve been justified freely in Christ Jesus (Romans 3:24), with His life and nature of righteousness in your spirit. Now, you can boldly fellowship with God in love without a sense of guilt, condemnation or inferiority! Hallelujah!

Blessed be God! I’ve been justified freely in Christ Jesus, with His life and nature of righteousness in my spirit. Thank you, Father, for the vicarious sacrifice of Jesus Christ through which I’ve been made righteous. Through the gift of righteousness that I’ve received, I walk in dominion and reign over circumstances, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Romans 3:27-28 Where [is] boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

Romans 4:1-8 What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found?

2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath [whereof] to glory; but not before God.

3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,

7 [Saying], Blessed [are] they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

8 Blessed [is] the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin. ||

Titus 3:4-5 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,

5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

Ephesians 2:4-5 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) ||

ALTAR CALL

If you have been blessed by this Christian blog site, and you haven’t

given your life to Christ Jesus, I now invite you to make Jesus Christ The Lord

of your life by sincerely saying this prayer:

“Dear Lord God, My Heavenly Father, I come to You in the

Name of Jesus Christ. Your Word says, “…..whosoever

shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21).

I ask Jesus to come into my heart to be the LORD of my life.

I receive eternal life into my spirit and according to Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth

the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from

the dead, thou shalt be saved,” I declare that I am saved; I am born –

again; I am a child of God! I now have Christ dwelling in me, and greater is He

that is in me than he that is in the world! (1 John 4:4). I now walk in the

consciousness of my new life in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah! Amen!

Congratulations! You are now a child of God.
