I am…the Righteousness of God.
“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” 2 Corinthians 5:21 NIV
There are many days that we feel filthied by our sin. There are times we feel that we’ve shown ourselves unfaithful one too many times. The good news is, that God carried out a mission to solve that problem before you even knew it was a problem.
He offered up his spotless, blameless son to pay the penalty for our sin. Now through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ we have been made right with God, once and FOR ALL.
That means nothing you can do, once the gift is accepted, can take that away from you.
If you are a believer, YOU ARE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD.
We are not simply made righteous, but we have become HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. It to me is a clear reminder that it is all FROM HIM.
What a gift!
