WHEN RIGHTEOUSNESS ABOUNDS
Let Your priests be clothed with righteousness,
And let Your saints shout for joy.
RIGHTEOUSNESS IS IMPUTED BY GOD
And therefore “it was accounted to him for righteousness.”
Now it was not written for his sake alone that it was imputed to him, but also for us. It shall be imputed to us who believe in Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, who was delivered up for our offenses, and was raised up for our justification.
We are made righteous
We are declared righteous
We are eternally righteous
RIGHTEOUSNESS IS TO BE PRACTICED
1 John 3:10
In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest:
Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God,
Righteousness is our position in Christ. However, we must work out our salvation with fear and trembling. In other words – we must practice living righteously.
RIGHTEOUSNESS IS WORN
We are to outwardly manifest our righteousness so that others can observe our manner of life.
Doctrine must be demonstrated.
When we demonstrate our righteousness it causes the saints to shout for joy.
When we fail in some area of life – we must never declare we are innocent – but must be forgiven and restored to our eternal position of righteousness.
Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
When we fail to live out our righteousness it causes those in our world to sorrow.
YOU ARE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST – SO PRACTISE LIVING WHAT YOU BELIEVE.
