Day 23 - What is Righteousness? (May 25)

What is Righteousness?

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. – Matthew 5:6

Righteousness is holiness, likeness to God, and ‘God is love.’ 1 John 4:16. It is conformity to the law of God, for ‘all Thy commandments are righteousness’ (Psalm 119:172), and ‘love is the fulfilling of the law’ (Romans 13:10). Righteousness is love, and love is the light and the life of God. The righteousness of God is embodied in Christ. We receive righteousness by receiving Him. – Thoughts from The Mount of Blessing, p. 18

Heart Challenge

Do you hunger and thirst for Christ’s righteousness?

His life of perfectly selfless love and His substitutional death provides you with a twofold gift of justifying grace: 1.) His imputed righteousness, which is the promise that you are covered by His perfect life through faith in that promise. 2.) His imparted righteousness, which is the promise that He will transform you from a being of selfishness, into a being that reflects the selfless love of Jesus, through a living faith in that very promise.

This twofold gift will fulfill you; it will truly satisfy you; it will save you! This gift is given to you in Jesus. Freely. Why not accept it today and start living a happy and Jesus-filled life in the awareness of this amazing reality of God’s redemptive love?
