Grace for you today !
Christ in me – God’s set time for my glory !
“Now a certain ruler asked Him, saying, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God.”
Luke 18:18-19 NKJV
There are two personalities in conversation:
1. One who thought that he is all good and expected a pat on his back, commending “well done” for keeping all the commandments of the law of Moses and
2.The Other who truly was and is all good and yet declined to be addressed as good rather points to God who alone is good.
What a contrasting mind set of these two people who fully kept the law! However, the demarcation between these two mindsets is the God’s kind of righteousness. Hallelujah!
The first followed the principles of the law and became rich monetarily , however the Other valued God as His true riches .
The first was brought up in the system of performance and he did well perform for his own benefit but the Other kept acknowledging the Presence (Holy Spirit) of His Father in Him and went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed( Acts 10:38).
My beloved, the true righteousness of God is not following a system of set of rules and regulations ( though we ought to obey rules) but the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus is a lifestyle led by the Spirit of God in everyone who believes (“acknowledging I can’t Lord but you can do it in and through me”).
When we confess that we are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus , we allow the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus to work out in us, the dynamics of the Holy Spirit and its first result is a guilt-free life , liberated from sin and death ( Romans 8:1,2) . Hallelujah! Amen 🙏
