The Righteousness of God

         God made him who had no sin to be sin[a] for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.  

2 Corinthians 5:21

Declare over yourself this day

“I am the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus”

I believe we can all agree that Apostle Paul said it best “ I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do”.  Later in the passage he says “Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me”.

We all have the best intentions in mind but often times we find ourselves falling short of the very thing we sent up to God in prayer. We find ourselves forgetting what we told God we would not do in prayer. We often find ourselves calling out to Jesus for help.

What then happens is we find ourselves stepping back into the corner, counting ourselves unworthy of the call on our lives and unworthy to dwell in the presence of a Holy God.

We have deemed ourselves worthless.

But God wants you to know today ….. that YOU ARE the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus. There is no sin to great or too big that could separate you from the love of Christ. He who had no sin became sin and through His death and resurrection has set us free and through His abundant love for us …. He has made us free. There is NO condemnation for those who are in Christ.

“And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more” … John 8:11
