For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
2 Corinthians 5:21

Knowing your identity in Christ changes everything.

Do you see yourself as righteous?
That seems like a bold statement, to call yourself righteous, but what does the Word have to say about it?
2 Corinthians 5:21 says, "For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God".  You have been made righteous through Jesus!  And how do you receive that gift of righteousness?  By believing!
Knowing you are righteous through Christ is the key to receiving all the Lord has for you!  Deuteronomy 28 lists the blessings.  Those blessings are for YOU because of what Jesus did.  He kept the law for YOU, He was made sin for YOU!  Now YOU have been made RIGHTEOUS!
Proverbs 23:7 says, "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he...", who do you think you are?  What's your identity?
My identity is, righteous through Christ! It's not based on my own actions, it's based on my believing.  I believe the truth of God's Word, that I was made righteous through Christ!
The Word of God is clear that right believing leads to right living- if you believe you are righteous, your life will begin to reflect it!

Blessings,
