You are the Righteousness of God


You are the Righteousness of God

So where is your sin?
God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:21
God does not count your sins against you because he counts them against HIS son.
This is the good news of the Gospel of the Cross of Jesus Christ. Jesus did not die as a martyr. Jesus died for your sins and for all mankind’s sin. HE who had no sin took your sin and my sin on the cross. Your sin and my sin are counted not against ourselves, but against Jesus Christ in exchange for HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. So you get to shift the burden of your sin over to Christ AND you get the righteousness of Christ. What a deal! You get to be in the right, just relationship with Holy God because of Jesus Christ taking your sin.
WOW! This is the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is not a message about how all religions are the same. This is not a message about man trying to get to God by being good through his own effort. This is about a God who loves you and all mankind, enough to send HIS only son to bear the sin burden of all mankind so that man can be in right relationship with God. This is about HOLY GOD leaving heaven and coming to earth in the likeness of man to redeem man of his sinful nature. This is the good news of man being redeemed and restored into the right relationship with Holy God which can only be done by Jesus Christ carrying the burden of your sin.
Your right relationship with God is for forever. Your rightful place is as a son or daughter of God. Your rightful place is as a brother or sister of Jesus Christ. Your rightful place is to walk in the Power of the resurrected Jesus Christ. God did not give you a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. The yoke of Christ is gentle and humble. HIS burden is light. You are in Christ and have no condemnation. You have been freed from the power of sin and death. Your old nature is gone and the new nature is in Christ.
You cannot earn your place with God. This is a gift of salvation and righteousness from God which comes to those who earnestly seek HIM. Your sin is not counted toward you. Your sin is counted toward Jesus. The Righteousness of God is imputed to you.
