THE GOD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS - By Robert E. Hanna


Scripture Reading: Psalms 111:3

"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one   But now the righteousness of God without the law is  manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; even  the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto  all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference;  for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; being  justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in  Christ Jesus" (Romans 3:10, 21-24). "For the wages of sin is  death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ  our Lord" (Romans 6:23).

The Apostle Paul, being himself a Jew by origin, grieved  for Israel, "For they being ignorant of God's righteousness,  and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not  submitted themselves to the righteousness of God. For Christ  is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that  believeth" (Romans 10:3, 4).

Human self-righteousness is graphically defined in the  sixth verse of Isaiah 64, "We are all as an unclean thing,  and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags ... " One may  well ponder Job's searching question, " ... How should man  be just with God" (Job 9:2b)?

Our own apostle gives the joyful answer: " ... Be ye  reconciled to God. For He hath made Him [Christ] to be sin  for us, [He] who knew no sin; that we might be made the  righteousness of God in Him" (II Corinthians S:2ob, 21). The  resultant condition is that of being " .. .found in Him, 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" (Philippians 3:9). God alone is righteous!

Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
