Your Robe of Righteousness

Your Robe of Righteousness

An exchange took place at the Cross and the only requirement to receive the divine exchange was and continues to be faith. As Charles H. Spurgeon puts it, “When we believe in Christ, by faith we receive our justification. As the merit of his blood takes away our sin, so the merit of his obedience is imputed to us for righteousness. God considers us as though we were Christ—looks upon us as though his life had been our life—and accepts, blesses, and rewards us as though all that he did had been done by us, his believing people.”

2 Corinthians 5:21 says “He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” That’s fantastically good news. YOU are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus if you’ve received God’s gift of love and reconciliation.

Therefore, you are justified through Jesus, and have His robe of righteousness with pockets labeled ‘blessings’, ‘favor, ‘deliverance’, ‘provision’, ‘healing’, etc. Don’t walk around in a robe of despair, doubting God’s love and goodness to you. Renew your mind and PUT ON your robe of righteousness and walk in the joy of God’s goodness and grace.
