On the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me: righteousness.
But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Romans 8:10-11
The Spirit gives life based upon a condition: Christ must be in you. HE is either in you or not. If HE is in you then the Spirit gives life because of righteousness.
Christmas is the time we remember Jesus coming to earth in the flesh. Jesus Christ has been from the beginning. HE came to earth in the flesh to make us right with HIM. HE came to bring us home in the rightful state for which we were created before sin. HE redeemed your sin and all mankind’s sin on the cross. You are made righteous by Christ Jesus and able to stand before the Throne of God. You are wearing the Robe and Crown of Righteousness because of the act of righteousness of Jesus Christ’s blood on the cross. Jesus paid the price for your sin and made you righteous. There is no righteous or religious act you must do to gain this righteousness other than receive Christ in you. HE did it ALL. HE is the righteous one who has restored and brought you into HIS FAMILY.
You are a son and daughter of Jesus Christ and a child of God. You are seated next to Jesus Christ. Know the truth and HE will set you free. Jesus Christ is the truth. HE came to bring you back into HIS eternal family. Your ancestors Adam and Eve forced you to be born into sin. Jesus Christ has made you right with HOLY GOD.
Walk today in the Spirit of Christ which lives in you. You have the Spirit of life and peace living in you. You have the confidence of the resurrected Christ living in you.
He WHO raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you. This truly allows you to sing JOY to the World the Lord has come, let earth receive her KING. King Jesus is living in you. Walk today in HIS Righteousness. HE has removed the sin, fear, death, guilt, regret, shame, hatred, bitterness, pride, worry, greed, anxiety, unforgiveness, loneliness, mistakes, failure, and the performance trap. The truth will set you free. You have been freed from the spirit of sin and death. Live in the truth of Christ Jesus’ righteous act. HE came to make you right with God. Celebrate Christmas with the Joy of Christ living in you.
