All too often, Christian believers have not regarded the importance of appropriating the righteousness which Christ Jesus has obtained for us through His precious blood. For those who return week to week seeking cleansing from sin, you should know God has revealed the rule of righteousness.
God’s rule of righteousness is revealed through His word which promises, in Hebrews 10:1-14, you have been sanctified “once for all”, and through the blood of Jesus, ” he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified”. Therefore the sin problem has handled for you when you were recreated and received the nature and life of God; that is, you were ruled righteous in Him.
Your sin has been completely put away, including the remission of everything you have committed. And God has declared He has given you His own righteous nature. We see this borne out in 2 Corinthians 5:21, ” For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him”.
According to 1 Corinthians 1:30, Jesus is your righteousness; the New Creation has made you to become the righteousness in Him. The rule of righteousness affirms that you are a Son or daughter of God, and that you can stand in the heavenly place with God without fear, condemnation, or shame.
