Grace for you today !
Christ in me – God’s set time for my glory!
They said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?” So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?” She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.” John 8:4-5, 7, 10-11 NKJV
As per the righteousness according to the law, it is right to stone the adulterous woman to death. *But, as per the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, no one is right*!
The righteousness by the law, requires the guilty to be punished but the righteousness of God in Jesus required the guilt to be punished on the body of Jesus whereby the guilty is acquitted. Hallelujah!
The righteousness of the law will definitely condemn everyone guilty, no matter how saintly he tried to live or how saintly he posed himself to be living. It is just a matter of time that true colors will come out exposing the real person. But, the righteousness of Jesus will justify even the most wretched sinner and transform him as an angel inside out*! *It’s awesome!
An encounter with Jesus alone will reveal the true righteousness of God. Therefore, the accused went home fully acquitted & the accusers went home convicted. Wonderful Jesus!!
My beloved, Jesus is the Righteousness of God*. He is Jehovah T’sidkenu! Everyone who believes that Jesus is their righteousness shall never be put to shame but the rest will stumble at the stumbling stone ( Romans 9:32,33).
I proclaim this morning that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus! Amen 🙏
