Putting on the Gift of God's Righteousness
Here are two very important questions that you need to ask yourself:
'Do I know who I am in Christ?'
'Am I walking in righteousness?'
Too many people can't properly answer these questions and it keeps them from living in the freedom and peace that God designed for them to walk in.
The moment we receive Jesus Christ as our Savior, the Bible says God takes away our sin and gives us His righteousness. It's a gift, and we don't need to earn it. But we do need to put it on, and every time we do, we receive His peace.
When you know who you are in Christ, worldly obstacles won't matter anymore. When you know that He loves you and He died for you, you'll just get up every day and do your best to love God.
When that happens, when you know who you are in Christ, you can put on and walk in the righteousness that He purchased for you. As you experience His love for you, your natural response will be to live for Him with all that you have.
Prayer Starter: Lord, I want to be constantly aware of who I am in You. Help me to remember all that You've done for me so that I can daily put on Your righteousness.
