“My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world. Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked”. (1 John 2:1-6 NKJV).
“Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together”.(Romans 8:12-17 NKJV).
The Righteousness of GOD
2 Corinthians 5:21 tells us,
For He (God) has made HIM (Jesus) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that wemight be made the righteousness of God in him (Jesus).
Then in Romans 3:22,it says,
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe…
However, 2 Peter 1:1 says this,
…to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Savior Jesus Christ:
-Do not argue about righteousness with anyone.
-God alone establishes righteousness that is true and holy.
-When you received Jesus as your Savior and Lord you became the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
