Romans 10:3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God.
Let’s take a look at the righteousness of God so that we do not fall in to the same category as the children of Israel did when they were ignorant of the righteousness of God.
The righteousness of God refers to his faithfulness, his truthfulness. It is that father God is always consistent in his own nature and promises. Righteous is who He is and because He is righteous everything that He says and does is right. He does not look outside himself to find right. There is no circumstance or anyone outside Father God that dictates to him righteousness or the right thing to do.
We see in the word that by one man’s offense sin and death entered mankind. Therefore the righteousness of God sent Jesus, the one man, to be a propitiation for our sins. In other words, by one man’s obedience, Jesus, we have been made righteous or put in right standing with God or totally accepted in the beloved by our Father God. Now Father God can deal and treat us as if we have never sinned. Praise the Lord.
Abraham said, shall not the judge of all the earth to do right? The answer is yes, all the time. The Lord is faithful to his word all the time. The Lord fulfills his word all the time. The Lord’s nature is righteousness and He never fall short of who He is. Please receive with me the truth word of God. As Jesus is, so are we in this world.
Father, I believe your word and your word says that as Jesus is so am I in this world. I believe that and I receive it. I thank you for the grace to walk in your truth today. I believe I’m just like Jesus in this world today.
In the name of Jesus amen.
