righteousness of God

"For our sake God made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." II Cor. 5:21in context

When you express a true dependence and a faith in God, not only is the guilt of your sin removed, you will become the "righteousness of God" as was displayed in the obedience of Jesus.

How awesome is that?!?

I mean, I am about the farthest thing from righteousness... yet in the courtroom of the most Holy One, I am righteous.

How could we not throw ourselves at his feet over and over because of his grace? Yet how do we end up living?

I hope that today, the living and powerful word of God will manifest itself in you when you think of what has been done for you through the death of Christ.
