There is another amazing truth that we can read in 2 Corinthians 5 v 21
When we are made righteous it is nothing to do with what we do or have done.
Our righteousness has nothing to do with our performance, so in a real sense it is not our righteousness.
When we are made righteous this is done as a gift of grace through faith in Jesus.
And we are not made of any old righteousness.
When our spirit is created new (2 Corinthians 5 v 17) it is created in righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4 v 24).
And the righteousness that we have is the righteousness of God.
Yes, when we are made righteous we are made as righteous as God.
No Vic you may be thinking, you’ve gone a bit far this time!
No I have not; this is the Biblical truth if you read this passage.
Jesus takes our sin so that we can have God’s righteousness.
That is exactly what 2 Corinthians 5 v 21 is saying.
Through Jesus we are made the righteousness of God; and that is a direct quote from the Bible.
Please read this passage if you do not believe me.
If you are born again, right now in your born again spirit you are as righteous as God.
Now that’s the good news!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I have been the righteousness of God in Christ 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
