Righteous Through ChristThursday, April 14, 2016
2 Corinthians 5:21
"For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him."
Am I the righteousness of God? The righteousness of GOD? Me? Of God? That's when I cried! Righteousness in the Greek means innocent, holy, just, right. Through Jesus, we have been made the righteousness of God! We have been made holy and have right standing with God. We have been justified (just as if we have never sinned)!
The Word of God is alive Hebrews 4:12 tells us, and this verse has become alive in me! I say it every day! "I am the righteousness of God"! It has changed what I think about myself! Say this verse out loud. Let the living Word change you because you are the righteousness of God! You are justified! You are in right standing with God! He loves you so much that He made His Son become sin for you! Now that's love!
