New Testament Righteousness.
“But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” Romans 4:5
New Testament righteousness is a gift you received when you give your heart to Jesus Christ. It is not predicated on what good you have done. Isaiah 64:6 declares all your effort, works, struggles to become righteous before God are like filthy rags. So stop now and receive the gift of righteousness from God so that you can live for Him.
After the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross God imputes righteousness to anyone who believes in His son and not to those who obey the law Gal 2:16. In 2 Cor. 5:21 Jesus took our sins and gave us His righteousness. Romans 4:5-8. It is the righteousness that comes by faith. It is not because you are morally upright or that you exercise self-control or that you feel so or you’re more present than any other person. Like the songwriter wrote, it is not by works of righteousness but Jesus did it all. When you believe it your faith is accounted for righteousness. You didn’t really need faith to know that you are righteous by your deeds; you also don’t need faith to know you are sinful. But you need faith to declare your righteousness in Christ in the midst of your struggle with temptation and sin. When you have missed it and you remind yourself that you are the righteousness of God in Christ, the revelation will cause you to pick up yourself to do the right thing. I know the devil will jump on your shoulder to challenge your righteousness, remind him it is because of the blood and the finished work on the cross.
Thank God for your righteousness
