Here's something I find quite AMAZING!! GOD'S very OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS is available to all those who have a Godly desire, deep in our heart, to live right for the Lord! This great news is in Paul's letter to the church at Rome, where he is speaking about the righteousness of God, and describes this as: ROMANS 3:22 the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe...
Did you get that? He's saying that through our faith in Jesus comes the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD!! And WHO is this for? - it's for all who believe!! That's you and me, right!! So we should not BE, nor NEED to be STRUGGLING in order to live better!We should NOT because we have access to GOD'S OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS!! HIS righteousness can and will COME into our lives as we earnestly SEEK to be more and more OBEDIENT, and thus we will then SIN LESS! Works for ME!!
Like a litte more of this? Okay, here we go: EPHESIANS 4:24 And put on the new man created in God's image, in true righteousness and holiness. So from God we may have righteousness AND holiness - goodness, THAT'S a wow!! And there's MORE: 1 CORINTHIANS 1:30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, Who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— THIS time we got 4 things from God, through Jesus: wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption. Blessed we are indeed!!
