Grace for you today !
Christ My Exalting Glory!
“I have gone astray like a lost sheep; Seek Your servant, For I do not forget Your commandments.”
Psalms 119:176 NKJV
“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
Paul reveals the success story of his walk with God : After he had an encounter with Jesus on the way to Damascus, his life long pursuit was only to know Jesus and His righteousness through the revelation given by the Holy Spirit. Undoubtedly, he is the greatest apostle of all times.
He realised that one can feel lost when he pursues his own righteousness but be found while pursuing God’s righteousness.
Knowing the law of Moses reveals what I need to do whereas knowing Jesus reveals what Jesus has already done for me. Hallelujah!
The law reveals where I am wrong but Jesus reveals that He has borne all my wrong doings upon Himself on the cross .
The law reveals that I am accountable for my sins whereas Jesus reveals that my sins have been paid for completely on His own body.
The law reveals that I am a debtor, with an outstanding debit balance that keeps increasing day by day whereas Jesus reveals that all my debts have been erased, instead He has also credited me with health that is not subject to any ailment, wealth beyond my wildest imagination, peace that passes all understanding, joy that is inexplicable full of glory & the highest quality of life that can never taste death. If we sum up all these credits into one thing its called ‘Righteousness’. This is what Romans 4:3 says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” Is this not too good to be true? Yes beloved, this is Gospel of Christ –
“ Seek His Righteousness and all that you look for in life shall be added unto you.”
( Mathew 6:33).
We need is a fresh understanding of His righteousness!
You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus ! Amen 🙏🏽
