(Righteousness: God’s Expressed Will And Nature)
TO THE BIBLE: Psalm 37:6
“He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.”
To understand righteousness, you must first understand the concept of good and evil, right and wrong.
According to the Bible, good and evil, right and wrong can only be judged or decided by the nature of God. This means, to know what’s good or evil, right or wrong, God reveals His nature and will to man. Otherwise, we will never know what to do or what God expects of us.
Righteousness, therefore, is the expression of the will and nature of the Father. He’s the Judge; He decides what’s good or evil, what’s right or wrong, by His very nature. His revelation of Himself, His nature, His character and His will are the collective expression of His righteousness.
Our natural minds can’t comprehend the vastness and immeasurable amplitude of God’s reasoning. If He came to us as complex as He is, we wouldn’t be able to understand anything about Him; so He made it simple by sending Jesus to us, who came as a man so we could understand God.
He said, “…He who has seen Me has seen the Father…” (John 14:9) and in John 10:30, He said, “I and My Father are one.” He came to express the will and nature of the Father; He’s described for us in Hebrews 1:3 as the express image of the Father.
He was, and still is, the perfect imprint and ultimate icon of God; and we’re like Him (1 John 4:17). Our righteousness, therefore, is the expression of the will and nature of the Father.
Romans 5:17 says, “…much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.”
This means we’ve been gifted with the ability, authority and power to articulate, manifest, and express the will and nature of the Father everywhere we go: in every situation, in every event, and in every matter. Hallelujah!
1 Peter 2:9; Hebrews 1:3; 1 John 4:17
My life is for the glory of God, and I manifest His goodness, will and nature, everywhere. I’m the proof of His equity, a trophy of His goodness, and the unveiling of His character, beauty, excellence and grace, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
