THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
"I'm sorry you didn't like the birthday gift I gave you," the rich aunt said to her nephew.
She continued, "But I asked if you liked large checks or small checks."
He said, "Yes, Ma'am. But I didn't know you were talking about TIES!"
2 Cor 5:21
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin;
that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
The gift of which Paul speaks in the text above, is certainly a “tying” gift!
This gift ties those who surrender to Christ to HIS “righteousness!”
Oh Christian, meditate today on the marvelous wonder of this gift!
Jesus has placed upon you the cloak of HIS divine righteousness!
It is the garment by which you are always “accepted in the Beloved!” (Eph. 1:6)
This is the garment which makes Christ your “Advocate” (1John 2:1).
It is the garment which causes Christ to constantly “make intercession” for you (Heb. 7:25).
This garment causes you to be “complete in Him” (Col. 2:10).
Rom 8:1-4 says,
1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
As you go about your day, Christian, walk after “the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus!”
Whatever difficulty you face today;
Whatever trial may come your way;
Do not look around;
Do not look down;
LOOK UP and say,
”I am TIED to HIS righteousness!”
