THE BLESSING OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
What is this righteousness? It is to have a “right relationship with God.” Yet this right relationship cannot be earned nor acquired by human effort. It is a blessing from God that must be received by faith. For Jesus Christ is the righteousness of God to all those who believe (Rom. 3:22). He is the Savior who offers us the blessing of eternal life.
Have you received the blessing of righteousness? You have if you have received Jesus as Savior and Lord.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, thank you for the blessing of righteousness that you have given in the person of Jesus Christ to all who believe. We confess Jesus as Lord and Savior and believe in our hearts that You have raised Him from the dead. Thank you for saving us and accounting unto us the righteousness of Christ Jesus. We are adopted in Your family and accepted in Your courts as sons. We worship You and give You glory and praise! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
