Power of Faith! Righteousness!

The Gospel is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone that believes. Romans 1:16

In this same gospel, the righteousness of God is revealed. This righteousness is a righteousness that is by faith. You cannot earn it in any other way other than by faith. Romans 1:17 The righteous will live by faith!

How hard can this truth be? I wonder why it took this long for this truth to permeate my being. I think my belief system conditioned me somehow to erroneously believe that I cannot attain this righteousness. I kept undervaluing what the blood bought for me. How wrong I was! For the Lord by His blood washed and poured His essence into you and I!

You can never, neither can I ever be righteous on our own, even though I do not steal, commit adultery, murder, covet, lie, fornicate, worship idols, or/ and engage in any secret sin, I still cannot attain this righteousness.

Like most of you, anger and pride are always lurking around my every action and reaction. Doubt and unbelief often sneaked in unawares, and when I conquered all these, then a little gossip peeped in, and so on like a rollercoaster I kept struggling against all these little foxes that spoilt the vine – Song of Solomon 2:15.

The Lord Himself by His Holy Spirit searches the hearts of man. Jeremiah 17:10“I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.” He saw my struggle and sent help to me. He led me to read this truth in His word and He opened my heart to receive it.

The fact is that only faith in Christ Jesus can make you and I righteous, the moment this truth took hold of me and I allowed it room in my heart, then I slowly realized that the things I struggle with gradually dissipated.

I am no longer slave to sin because I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. 2 Corinthians 5:21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Hoping this is your truth also friends. You can make it yours too if you believe. Reexamine what you believe in line with what the scriptures says and walk forward with that premise.

You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus and its by faith alone. 2 Corinthians 5:21, Romans 1:17

Shalom!
