FOR THE WEEK OF January 04, 2016

Understanding the Foundation of Righteousness

Print

Let's start this week strong by remembering that a strong foundation is the basis for everything, and our spiritual lives are no different. As Christians, the first foundation that we must understand is the foundation of righteousness. When we begin to understand how this operates in our life, we open the door for blessings to flow to us in abundance. But this doesn’t happen automatically. As free moral agents, we must decide whether or not to accept all that God has made available to us. We can either choose a foundation built upon self-righteousness, or God’s righteousness. We never have to worry about toiling or sweating for any kind of victory where our jobs, relationships, finances, education, or health are concerned when we choose God’s righteousness because Christ is the author and finisher of our faith. His righteousness must be the foundation of our Christian lives and the starting point from which we base all of our decisions. Remember, you have a choice this week. Choose to respond in favor of Christ’s righteousness instead of toiling relentlessly and missing the mark by trusting in self-righteousness.  Taffi and I love you dearly. We pray that you will receive, and be blessed by, this word.

Prayer

Father, I am thankful to be called the righteousness of God. Your Son, Jesus, paid the price so that I could be perfected and made whole in You. This week I will constantly acknowledge that I am the righteousness of God. I cast down every thought that tries to set itself against that truth. I embrace Your Word in Romans 10:11 that says, anyone who believes in You will never be put to shame. I thank You for this, and give You all the glory and all the praise. In Jesus’ name Amen.
