“For if because of one man’s trespass (lapse, offense) death reigned through that one, much more surely will those who receive [God’s] overflowing grace (unmerited favor) and the free gift of righteousness [putting them into right standing with Himself] reign as kings in life through the one Man Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One)” (Romans 5:17 AMP) You do not work to earn your right standing in the sight of God. Righteousness has been given to you as a free gift. There is nothing that you can do to earn it, or even maintain it. It is simply an established fact in your life. Jesus has justified you through your faith, and He Himself has become your righteousness. You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. You are not justified and made righteous by observing the laws of Moses. You must understand that the reason the law was given was so you can receive a consciousness of sin and recognize the need of a Saviour. Now that you are the righteousness of God, apart from the law of Moses, has been manifested in you. It is a righteousness endorsed by the law and the prophets, namely, the righteousness of God, which comes from believing in Jesus. Signs, wonders and miracles are following you, Glory to God. You have this reality in your life. PRAYER FOR TODAY “Dear Father, thank you for the Word. When I look into your Word, I see myself. I yield to what the Word says in Jesus Name,
Amen”. – Faith Centre International
