Right With God

Right With God

“Everything that we have-right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start-comes from God by way of Jesus Christ.” (1Cor.1.30)

“For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.(2Cor.5.21)

“When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love,¬† He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior.” (Titus.3.4-6)

 

I Am Right!

It is not what you do that makes you righteous. It is what Christ has done at Calvary. Romans 5:19 says, “For as by one man’s (Adam) disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.” It is the obedience of one Man-Christ-and not your obedience that has made you righteous!

RIGHTEOUS right·eous [rahy-chuhs] adjective

(1) acting in accord with divine or moral law: free from guilt or sin

(2) Morally right or justifiable

Your loving Heavenly Father wants you to live with the full understanding that Jesus died to make you righteous. He wants you to be conscious of your eternal righteousness in Christ! Do the outrageous thing! Begin to tell yourself who you are in Christ! “I am the righteousness of God in Christ!” (2Cor.5.21)

You don’t need a revelation of how sinful you are. You know when you sin. What you need, instead, is a revelation of how forever righteous you are in God’s eyes, especially when you sin. And when you are conscious of this gift of righteousness that is an eternal gift to you, you will rule and reign in this life! (Rom.5.17) You will reign over sin, bad habits, sicknesses, lack and everything that holds you back from a victorious life!

The Outrageous Life is lived with confidence in the righteousness that is yours in Christ Jesus. When you know His forgiveness, His righteousness, His peace and power, you are secure in His ability to give you a right standing with His Father.

It is not what you do that makes you right; it is what Christ has done at Calvary. He said it from the Cross – “It is finished.”
