πŸ‘‘ The Rightness Of God

There are many theological words which most people β€” even most Christian people β€” do not under-stand. Among these is the Bible word β€œrighteousness”. Actually, though, this word is very simple and we ought to understand about God’s righteousness even before we learn of His love.

Righteousness is simply an old word forΒ rightness. When we say that God is righteous, we simply mean that what He does is alwaysΒ right; that He will not and cannot do anything that is notΒ right. This is why Paul declares in Romans 1:16, 17:

β€œI am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth…FOR THEREIN IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS [rightness] OF GOD REVEALED…”

We are proud to proclaim the gospel of the grace of God because it emphasizes God’sΒ rightness. The gospel does not tell us that God will overlook our sins or wink at them and smuggle us into heaven. It doesn’t tell us that He will forgive us if we are sorry enough or do enough good deeds to counterbalance our sins.Β By no means.

The β€œgospel of the grace of God” is based on HisΒ rightness. It is the wonderful message that β€œChrist died for our sins”, that He paid for them Himself so that He might justly offer us forgiveness and declare us righteous. 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
