YOUR RIGHTEOUS NATURE
(Keep Expressing Your Righteousness In Christ)
TO THE BIBLE
1 Corinthians 1:30 NIV
“It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.”
Righteousness is the nature of God in you, producing in you the rightness of God: the ability to do right and fulfil the will of the Father. God is always right; it’s His nature to be right.
This nature of righteousness is at work in us. So in our Kingdom, we do righteousness: we walk in righteousness and do works of righteousness; we manifest the goodness of God to the world.
It was for the same reason that the Pharisees and Sadducees had a problem with the good works that Jesus did; they misunderstood Him. If at school, for example, you did something you thought was good and required commendation, but instead you found yourself being persecuted for your good works, don’t feel bad about it.
Just because you’re good and doing the right thing doesn’t mean everybody is going to be cheering you on. There might be those that’ll resist you, and try to swerve you from your path; they might even call you evil, in spite of your good works; maintain your composure. Refuse to change. Stay the course with the Word of God in your heart and in your mouth.
Remember, you’re the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus; therefore, it’s your calling to express His righteousness. See yourself that way, regardless of the pressures and challenges that may tend to provoke you to compromise.
See yourself just as the Word says: (1 John 4:4); this means that you’re greater than your adversaries, detractors and persecutors. You’re a victor forever. Stay in the Word, and keep manifesting His righteousness, no matter the criticism, and you’ll always win. Hallelujah!
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
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.
Dear Father, I thank you for making me a victor for life, and granting me the grace to reign in life and live for your glory. Righteousness and goodness are the hallmarks of my life; therefore, I express righteousness and walk in your perfect will today, and always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
