I am in Florida this week with our dear friends, Dr. Jack & Marie Myers, and Rev. Jay & Tammy Hoskins, for the Word & Spirit Conference, hosted by the Myers. I have the honor of ministering on righteousness in the morning meetings. So it seemed right to share with you some of what I’m sharing in Florida :)
I’m here to tell you: YOU ARE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST!
And no matter what you believe about yourself, YOU ARE BLESSED AND NOT CURSED! [click to tweet]
2 Corinthians 5:21 says, “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
Let me ask you, did Jesus commit any sin? (Obvious answer is no.) YET… God made Him a sinner.
Is that right? God made Jesus to be sin for US? Yes!
So, just like Jesus committed no sin to be made a sinner, YOU AND I have done nothing righteous enough to be made the righteousness of God in Him. YET… God made us the righteousness of Christ.
THEREFORE, if you didn’t do anything to deserve righteousness, why do you think you can do anything to STOP being the righteousness of God in Christ?
Meditate on that today! YOU ARE BLESSED and not cursed!
Question: Why are we so prone to believe the devil’s lies instead of God’s truths? [answer in the comments]
