1 Corinthians 1:30 (KJV) But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.
A young ruler asked Jesus what he’ll do to have eternal life; Jesus told him “Keep the commandments”. Very excited he said “I’ve kept all the commandments right from my childhood days.” Jesus then said, “Sell all that you have, give it to the poor, then come and follow me.” The ruler walked away sad. He still loved his riches a little more than he wanted to follow Christ.
Some Christians are comfortable when they’re told to observe certain rules and commandments, but like the young ruler, they walk away whenever the truth is told; they are not really ready to follow Christ.
Living a righteous life is not by keeping of rules, regulations, and commandments. Even though a righteous person is a moral person, righteousness is not morality; it is more than what the mind can produce. Righteousness is God’s gift and only He can make a person righteous.
1 Corinthians 1:30 shows us that Christ is the one who make us righteous before God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin by dying on the cross for us”. But you have to believe in Him and follow Him in order to activate this in your life.
Go into today remembering that God is the one who makes you righteous because you now follow Christ. Put on your new righteous nature by loving God above everything else
Prayer: Thank you Jesus for making me righteous. Amen.
