Blessed day to everyone today! Remember today how much God loves you, with a love that is only good for you not harmful, He loves you with no strings attached and wants to bless you today! You are righteous today (innocent, guiltless, faultless, and have right standing with God) because of what Jesus has done for you.
Romans 1:16 “For I am not ashamed of THE gospel of Christ, for it is THE power of God to salvation for everyone who believes…” NKJV vs 17 Herein lies the secret of the gospel; there is no good news until the righteousness of God is revealed! (The good news is the fact that the cross of Christ was a success. God rescued the life of our design, He redeemed our innocence. Man would never again be judged righteous or unrighteous by his own ability to obey moral laws! It is not about what man must or must not do but about what Jesus has done!) God now persuades everyone to believe what He knows to be true about them. (It is from faith to faith) The prophets wrote in advance about the fact that God believes that righteousness defines the life that He always had in mind for us. “Righteousness by His (God’s) faith gives meaning to life.” (Mirror Translation)
Notice that the gospel (good news) of Christ is THE power of God! This statement from verse 17 tells us where the power of God is; …the righteousness of God is revealed… The power of God comes from His revealing His righteousness in our lives! The good news is that through the cross, Jesus cleared you of all charges, declared you innocent by His blood, and gave you the gift of righteousness! This is awesome! You are free! On top of that He has given you His grace, endless supply of whatever you need. All you have to do is believe, believe what He has done for you, believe that you are righteous! It is His gift to you, receive it and enjoy effortless success today!
Romans 5:17 For if by one man’s offense death reigned through the one, MUCH more those who receive abundance of grace (unearned, undeserved, unmerited favor) and the gift of righteousness will REIGN IN LIFE through the one Jesus Christ. Now go reign in life!
