Topic :An Abundance of Righteousness for
Every Accusation of Satan
Until a man is righteous, and knows that he is righteous, he will not live in the abundance of God and reign in life. “For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ”
We must be informed fromGod’s Word of what belongs to us and learn to honor God by the way we live. God is not pleased when we disregard any of the great redemptive work of Jesus. He desires to bring us out of the realmof slavery and servitude and into our rightful position in the kingdomof God.
We must know:
We are redeemed.
We are new creation beings.
We are delivered from Satan’s power.
We are free of all our sins.
The moment we receive Jesus as our personal Savior, we receive God’s nature and become the righteousness of God in
Christ Jesus. “For He made Himwho knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
Jesus became sin for us. As a result, we can stand in the presence of Almighty God free of sin—righteous and holy children of God. He no longer looks at us as sinners. He sees us as the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. However, a sense of unworthiness, no matter how it is produced in our lives, destroys faith, robs us of our peace of mind, and makes us ineffectual Christians. It is a work of the enemy to keep us fromliving in the abundance of God as kings and priests.
If we have a feeling of inferiority, we cannot reign in life. We are in Christ. That is our position by faith. We have been bought with a price, with the precious blood of Jesus, and we no longer belong to ourselves (1 Corinthians 6:19–20).
All of our success is in Him. We cannot fail when we understand that we have been made righteous.Joined to Jesus Christ, the exalted Son of God, we have no room for thoughts and feelings of inferiority. We must replace those feelings with the knowledge of who we are in Christ
Jesus.Joined to Jesus Christ, we have no room for thoughts and feelings of inferiority.
Countless believers live under a constant sense of condemnation, feeling they will never be good enough to go to heaven or do anything for His glory. Many sincere and dedicated believers, for instance, have been taught to believe certain doctrines and ideas that keep themin bondage and
torment. I once talked with a woman who had been told that she would go to hell if she put on lipstick or cut her hair, and
she was experiencing severe emotional problems over it. That may seem extreme, but many believers carry religious baggage
that keeps themfrom living in Christ’s righteousness.
