YOU ARE RIGHTEOUS
Brothers, if you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior then you are Righteous. You and I did nothing of our own self to be Righteous. Just as we did nothing to be saved and forgiven of our sins. Jesus became our sins, he took our punishment for ALL of our sins. He was beaten and persecuted in our place. He was crucified and put to death in place for you and for us who know Jesus as the Son of God.
Please look at the photograph above and see that there is nothing standing in the way of your righteousness because Jesus gave us our righteousness.
Brothers just as you know that you are saved please know also that you are Righteous. The only thing that you did to be forgiven of your sins was to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. When you accepted Jesus as Savior then you also was made Righteous by that same cleansing blood of Jesus the Christ.
2nd 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.
1st Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
Hebrews 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
Brothers, please see from God's holy word that Jesus made you righteous. Don't listen to your fleshly mind when it tells you that your sin has taken your Righteousness.
We are told in the word of God that satin comes to steal, kill, and destroy. The devil corrupted our flesh when Adam and Eve listened to him in the garden of Eden. He uses your fleshly mind now to try to rob you of everything that God and Jesus has given us as born again children of God.
Always remember that satin is a liar always and can not tell the truth. He is evil always and goes about continuously trying to rob all children of God the truth of God's word.
From the time that you accepted and knew Jesus you were made a new creature. The old fleshly you died on the cross with Jesus, just as did your sins past, present, and future when you confessed these sins.
Your new inner man the born again spirit man, that lives inside your fleshly body, has a mind, and a heart. This new spirit mind and heart is your eyes and ears that God has given you. Walk by Spirit not by your fleshly sight.
The Holy Spirit of God has come to abide inside your spirit man along with Jesus himself. We are told in the word of God that Jesus and God's very own Holy Spirit has come to live inside each of us who are born again children of God. PRAISE GOD!!!
Romans 5:17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
Do you see here that you by God's grace have received the gift of Righteousness which shall reign in your life by one, Jesus Christ.
Righteousness is a gift. You did not nor could you do anything to make yourself righteous. It is and always will be another free gift from God because of Jesus.
Anytime that satin through your fleshly mind try's to make you believe that you are unrighteous call him the liar that the word of God tells us he is. He can not tell the truth just as God can not lie.
