We have now reached the verse, in this mini DIG series, that changed my life.
We know that we are transformed by the renewing of our mind, and sometimes this transformation is slow and steady, sometimes it is in large steps.
My transformation took a large step once I realised that I had been made righteous.
In this verse we see how a believer is made righteous and also what type of righteousness we now have.
The first important point is how a believer becomes righteous.
It is not through works or religious performance; a believer is made righteous.
You cannot be in the process of moving to righteousness and we do not have different levels of righteousness.
You are either righteous or you are not!
2 Corinthians 5 v 21 tells us that we can be made righteous through the finished work of Jesus Christ.
We can be made righteous as He was made sin, even though He knew no sin.
He made this great exchange possible through the cross; He took our sin so that (as a gift of grace through faith) we could be made righteousness.
This is an amazing fundamental truth of the Christian faith and it will change your life if you truly understand and believe this.
I can testify that it did in my life.
I have never been the same since I understood and believed that I had been made righteous.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I have been made righteous as a gift of grace through faith in Jesus”.
2 Corinthians 5 v 21…..For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him
