๐Ÿ‘‘ The Gift Of Righteousness ๐ŸŽ

St. Paul, in his Epistle to the Romans, refers to those who receiveย โ€œthe abundance of graceโ€andย โ€œthe gift of righteousnessโ€ย (Rom.ย 5:17) which God in love bestows upon all who trust in His Son for salvation.

The Bible declares that no man can ever stand uncondemned in the sight of God, the Judge of all, unless he receives righteousness asย the gift of Godโ€™s grace.

Quoting from the Psalms, the Apostle says in Romansย 3:10; โ€œIt is written,ย there is none righteous, no, not oneโ€œ. This is why Paul pitied those who continued to go aboutย โ€œto establish their own righteousnessโ€ย (Rom. 10:3). He knew that their struggle was utterly futile, that they needed to beย savedย (Rom. 10:1).

Let us thank God that the Lord Jesus Christ took the condemnation and judgment of our sins upon Himself at Calvary so that His righteousness might be imputed to us by grace through faith. Regarding Abrahamโ€™s justification before God, the Apostle says:ย โ€œWhat saith the Scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousnessโ€ย (Rom. 4:3).

Abrahamโ€™s justification, of course, was based on the fact that Christ was to die for sin, but Christโ€™s death is now past; it is an historical fact. Thus righteousness is now proclaimedย through Christย and offered to all as aย gift.ย โ€œWhile we were yet sinners, Christ died for usโ€ย (Rom. 5:8).ย โ€œGod hath made Him to be sin for usโ€ฆthat we might be made the righteousness of God in Himโ€ย (II Cor.ย 5:21).

But we must receive this righteousness as aย gift, forย โ€œto him that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly, HIS FAITH is counted for righteousnessโ€ย (Rom.4:5). source

Bible Verse for 11/11/19

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. — 1 John 2:15-16
