"The Lord our Righteousness."

"The Lord our Righteousness."
Jeremiah 23:6

It will always give a Christian the greatest calm, quiet, ease, and peace, to think of the perfect righteousness of Christ. 
How often are the saints of God downcast and sad! 
I do not think they ought to be. 

I do not think they would if they could always see their perfection in Christ. 
There are some who are always talking about corruption, 
and the depravity of the heart, and the innate evil of the soul. 

This is quite true, but why not go a little further, and remember that we are "perfect in Christ Jesus."
 It is no wonder that those who are dwelling upon their own corruption should wear such downcast looks; 
but surely if we call to mind that 
"Christ is made unto us righteousness,"
 we shall be of good cheer. 

What though distresses afflict me, though Satan assault me, 
though there may be many things to be experienced before I get to heaven, 
those are done for me in the covenant of divine grace;
 there is nothing wanting in my Lord, 
Christ hath done it all. 

On the cross he said, "It is finished!" and if it be finished, 
then am I complete in him, and can rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory, 
"Not having mine own righteousness, 
which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ,
 the righteousness which is of God by faith." 

You will not find on this side heaven a holier people than those who receive into their hearts the doctrine of Christ's righteousness. 

When the believer says, "I live on Christ alone; 
I rest on him solely for salvation; and I believe that, however unworthy,
 I am still saved in Jesus;" 
then there rises up as a motive of gratitude this thought--
"Shall I not live to Christ? Shall I not love him and serve him, 
seeing that I am saved by his merits?" 
"The love of Christ constraineth us," 
"that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves but unto him which died for them."

 If saved by imputed righteousness, we shall greatly value imparted righteousness.

 If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ,
you can be accepted into his kingdom. 
I invite you to let him to make of you,
what He always wanted. 

Marvelous God Almighty, 
I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, who died for me to make me free of sin,
 I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free. 
 I confess that He is the son of God.
 I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, 
not only to live on this earth, 
but to be expectant of my life in heaven. 
In the precious name of Jesus I ask.

 “The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon
 must lie, not in its fashion and manner, 
but in the truth which it contains.”.... 
 Reflection and inspiration from the 
"Prince of Preachers,"
 Charles Haddon Spurgeon
The purpose of these pages is to share the precious word of God, 
 without acquiring any monetary reward.
 God gave me the salvation for free, 
so I share the gospel of his word the same way .. 
 ♥♥♥ Blessings to all of You, 
rejoice in the sublime and infallible word of God ♥♥♥ 

 Father, I ask You to bless my friends, 
relatives and those that I care deeply for, 
who are reading this right now.
 Show them a new revelation of Your love and power. 
 Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment.
 Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy.. 
Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace. 
 Where there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs. 
 Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings. Amen.
