The Gift of Righteousness

 

ROMANS 5:17 NIV

17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned

through that one man, how much more will those who receive

God's abundant provision of grace and of the gift of

righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.

 

The New Testament reveals the good news that God offers

righteousness as a free gift to everyone who receives the Lord

Jesus Christ.

 

Righteousness means right-wise-ness, or being right. So

righteousness is right standing, or good standing with God.

 

Righteousness is a GIFT from God -- not something you can earn

or achieve. God simply declares that you are innocent, as far

as He is concerned, because you believe in Jesus.

 

You are righteous if Jesus is your Lord. In fact, Jesus is your

righteousness. So, you are really as righteous as God is --

because He IS your righteousness. As a believer in Jesus, you

will never be more righteous -- no matter what you do.

 

1 CORINTHIANS 1:30 NIV

30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has

become for us wisdom from God-- that is, our righteousness,

holiness and redemption.

 

SAY THIS: I receive the gift of right standing with God through

my Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You Father God for this wonderful

gift.
