He made Christ who knew no sin to [judicially] be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we would become the righteousness of God [that is, we would be made acceptable to Him and placed in a right relationship with Him by His gracious lovingkindness].

— 2 Corinthians 5:21

Putting on the Gift of God's Righteousness

- by Joyce Meyer

Here are two very important questions you need to ask yourself 

“Do I know who I am in Christ?”

“Am I walking in righteousness?”

Too many people can’t properly answer these questions, and it keeps them from living in the freedom and peace that God designed for them to walk in.

The moment we receive Jesus Christ as our Savior, the Bible says God takes away our sin and gives us His righteousness. It’s a gift, and we don’t need to earn it. But we do need to put it on. And every time we do, we receive His peace.

When you know who you are in Christ, you have peace and confidence that God will always give you what you need to do what you need to do. When you know that He loves you and He died for you, you can get up every day and do your best to love God.

And when you know who you are in Christ, you can put on and walk in the righteousness that He purchased for you. As you experience His love for you, your natural response will be to live for Him with all that you have.

Prayer Starter: Lord, I want to be constantly aware of who I am in You. Help me remember all You've done for me so I can daily put on Your righteousness.
