Where Do You Get Righteous?

114x114-Repple-MinuteWhere Do You Get Righteous?

How do you obtain righteousness?

 Righteousness is something your receive. You don’t get it. You receive by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, nothing else. Righteousness is not something your earn. It is given through the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross.

But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ-the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith. I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Philippians 3:7-11

Your righteousness is like rubbish, your selfish desires are rubbish, and the righteousness which comes from God is the power which raised Christ from the dead. Christ Jesus imputes HIS righteousness to you. Greater is HE who is in you than he who is in the world.

Christ in you is the hope of Glory the Righteous ONE. We are created to be like Christ righteous and holy. Be Holy as I am Holy. My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense-Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:1-2

Righteous is something you receive not something you do. You receive the Gift of righteousness as an heir of Jesus Christ because of what HE did. Not because of anything you did so that you cannot boast that you earned your righteousness.

This is the Good News of Gospel. You do not earn righteousness through your self-effort our by following the law. Righteousness is the Gift given by God through Jesus Christ as payment for your sin debt. HE washed away all your sin and cleansed you with HIS BLOOD. You are made RIGHTEOUS because of what Jesus Christ did.

Righteousness is received by grace though faith in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. You are the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. You can enter into HIS PRESENCE boldly. HE loves you.
