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

    As new a creation in Christ, we've been made righteous in the sight of God. Our righteousness is not based on good behavior or good works.

    Our "good behavior and good works" are the result of being born again. Before the New Birth we were wretched sinners going to hell in a hand basket.

    As defined in Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the English language, Righteousness is "a purity of heart and rectitude (moral integrity) of life; conformity of heart and life to the divine law."

    The entrance of God's word gives light. When we accepted Christ into our heart, God cleansed us from ALL sin, gave us a new nature, and put us in right standing with Him.

    It is a gift, we cannot earn it. Thank God we don't have to work for it! It's FREE!! That's the Gospel (Good News)! Hallelujah to Jesus! ➕

    Scripture Reference: Romans 10:10...II Corinthians 5:17...John 1:9
    When your praise match your prayers, the answer will come.

    Romans 6:16-23
    Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
    But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
    Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
    I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
    For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.
    What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
    But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
    For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Amen!
