How righteous are you?

I really should start taking surveys.  I wonder how people would answer that question?  I know what some would say: “Not very!”  Most people don’t really accept that their sins have been washed away and that they stand in perfect righteousness before God.

How righteous are you?  If you belong to Jesus, you are as righteous as He is.  In fact, He is your righteousness.  In Him, you are the righteousness of God.

 

For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21

  1. one liner, yet so profound.

    How righteous can we be? or
    How much righteousness do we need to be right with God?
    Can we be righteous if we do righteous work?

    ah… it stings the heart and stirs the mind.

    grace and peace to you..
