Romans 3:21-22 (NET) But now apart from the law the righteousness of God (which is attested by the law and the prophets) has been disclosed – namely, the righteousness of God through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction
When Nkechi believed in the Lord Jesus Christ and received the Holy Spirit, she discovered a profound shift within herself. Returning to a life of sin felt like a violation of her very being, disrupting the peace she now held dear. As she delved into the Word, she recognized the birth of a new nature within her, one that radiated pure righteousness. This nature recoiled from sin, leaving her with a sense of dirtiness and guilt whenever she stumbled.
Regrettably, there are many who profess faith in Christ and lay claim to His righteousness, yet their lives reflect the opposite. For some, this pattern has become so ingrained that their consciences have become desensitized, no longer heeding the signals from their renewed spirits. These signals are meant to alert them when their actions stray from the righteous path, urging them to repent.
Righteousness isn’t just a concept or a mere title; it’s a dynamic force in action. It manifests as a visible way of life, surpassing even the limitations of the law (see Gal 5:21-23). Its standards exceed those of the Law, as it stems from a transformed heart, not just an adoption of rules.
As you step into today, bear in mind that righteousness is a call to action. Jesus came to empower you to walk in His righteousness—a righteousness that springs forth from unwavering faith in Him.
Confession: I am walking in a manner that aligns with the Lord’s will. I am bringing Him pleasure in every aspect of my life (see Col 1:10) in the name of Jesus.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
