Grace for you today !
Knowledge of Christ Our Excellence!
“and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;”
Philippians 3:9 NKJV
“For Moses writes about the righteousness which is of the law, “The man who does those things shall live by them.””
Romans 10:5 NKJV
There was a constant & conscious pursuit in the life of Paul the apostle not to have his own righteousness .
One’s own righteousness is to tell God, “ Look, I have kept the requirements of the law as described by Moses, therefore I am entitled to have every blessing”. This puts man on performance mind-set. It’s to say that only when he performs and performs well, he can be entitled to God’s blessing, else he will miss it . But the truth of the matter is that one can’t keep the law all the time.
However, the Lord Jesus kept the law at all times without fault. He kept the law in our stead, for us and as us. His obedience was complete.
Any one who believes this is made righteous and is entitled to every blessing . Hallelujah!
