New Testament faith is Righteousness by faith!

Grace for you today !

“So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”” Luke‬ ‭17:17-19‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“Your faith has made you well” – many a times I thought about it and even preached that we need this kind of faith demonstrated by our actions to receive our healing and in this instance we need to also sufficiently thank God to see healing / blessing in our lives.
Sometimes I preached even saying that we don’t see blessing because of lack of thanksgiving in our lives. Until one day the Holy Spirit graciously dawned upon my life to enlighten the truth.

Did this leper get his healing before thanksgiving or after thanksgiving? It is before thanksgiving!
Then what is his faith that the Lord Jesus is commending him of ?
It’s believing in the Righteousness of God which is only in Christ Jesus! The New Testament faith is referred as Righteousness of faith or Righteousness by faith . This Leper saw/ perceived/ discerned Jesus as his Righteousness ( T’sidkenu) .
My beloved when you receive God’s Righteousness as a free gift and not as a reward and confess that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus , you will see manifestation of God’s Power. You will automatically thank Jesus , praise Him and worship Him with all your heart.

Let’s reflect on instances when we received our blessing when we confessed that we are the righteousness of God in Christ, we will find thanksgiving springing up immediately & filling our hearts, even as we come to the end of this year. Amen 🙏

Praise Jesus!
