Topic:The practical application
Every person must choose to live like a king, or he or she will automatically exist as a slave. We have the power of choice to change our destiny! We should choose a personal relationship with Jesus. If we choose to live by rules and outward appearances, we are not going to live as kings in the abundance of God.
In his letter to the Romans, Paul tells us that the Gospel is for the salvation of all men (1:16). God has given to every man
the same measure of faith to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ
“But the righteousness of faith speaks in this way, ‘Do
not say in your heart, “Who will ascend into heaven?” ’ (that
is, to bring Christ down fromabove) or, ‘ “Who will descend
into the abyss?” ’ (that is, to bring Christ up fromthe dead).
But what does it say? ‘The word is near you, in your mouth
and in your heart’ (that is, the word of faith which we preach):
that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Himfromthe dead, you will
be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”
This is the practical application of righteousness. The righteousness that is of faith speaks! I want you to say out
loud: “I AmRighteous!” Say it again, and say it again. Confess it as the truth and believe it in your heart!
We are able to come before the Father and worship Him because of what Jesus has done for us. We do not come in our
own righteousness or our own goodness. We could never be good enough even to please ourselves. We come because we a the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus by faith .
