Rule In Your World.
“For if by one man’s offence 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.” Romans 5:17
Righteousness is not right “doing” but right “being”. In other words it is not what you have done right. You cannot really do right until you are made right. That is why God gave you His righteousness- Nature-Character-Right-standing so that you can do Right – conduct, once you have been made right or conduct yourself rightly. The text says the gift of righteousness causes us to reign in this life.
What a beautiful revelation from Paul. This gift gives me boldness to approach God without any fear of inferiority, condemnation or guilt. I expect Him to honour every request I present before Him. The gift of righteousness also causes you to stand boldly before the devil without any fear or intimidation. There is a knowing that the devil will have no choice than to obey.
I know you have probably been conditioned to earning righteousness; but let me burst your bubble if you are in that category – you cannot earn God’s righteousness. Try as much as you can, do all you know to do, you cannot earn a right standing with the Father by your works. It was the complete failure to earn righteousness that brought Jesus to the scene – He became sin, who knew no sin, that you might be made the righteousness of God. So He carried out a divine exchange – exchanged His righteous nature for your own sinful nature and nailed it eternally on the cross that you might have His righteousness.
When you have this understanding, it will cause you to rule in your world. Celebrate the gift of righteousness.
