THE BENEFITS OF GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS!
The work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever (Isaiah 32:17).
The benefits of God’s righteousness can never be over-emphasized. Without the righteousness of God in your life, you are not qualified to stand in His presence. It is also the righteousness of God that gives you eternal peace of God full of joy in the Holy Spirit. The Bible says in the opening text that the work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to benefits fully in His righteousness forever.
The righteousness of God does not only qualify you to stand in His presence, but rather it also gives you justification which is the right standing with God. That is why the Bible says in Romans 3:26, “To demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” Therefore, whenever a Christian learns to exercise his faith in Jesus Christ, his righteousness in God will be just and justified in life. The righteousness of God gives you justification with solid faith in Christ Jesus forever.
Furthermore, when a Christian is justified as a result of God’s righteousness, he automatically has eternal peace with God which surpasses human understanding. That is the reason why the Bible says in Romans 5:1, “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” In fact, it is the righteousness of Jesus Christ in the life of a Christian that gives him eternal peace of God which is Shalom in Hebrew context. Eternal peace is a by-product of justification which is obtained through God’s righteousness forever.
Daily Tip: A Christian who wants to have a right standing with God couple with eternal peace should desire to have God’s righteousness though Christ Jesus forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: For the promise that he would be heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith (Romans 4:13).
