WHOSE RIGHTEOUSNESS?

Post  Admin on Fri 17 Sep 2010, 1:45 pm

WHOSE RIGHTEOUSNESS? *
*By the late Pastor Bob Hanna
Scripture Reading: Philippians 3:9

The apostle Paul defined Israel's self-imposed barrier to securing
salvation: "They being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God" (Romans 10:3). And Paul declares, regarding
his own spiritual condition, as "not having mine own righteousness,
which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the
righteousness which is of God by faith" (Philippians 3:9). "I know that in me, (that is, in my flesh), dwelleth no good thing" (Romans 7:18).
The prophet Isaiah describes the condition of natural man: "We are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags"
(Isaiah 64:6). And David stated, "In thy [God's] sight shall no man
living be justified" (Psalms 143:2). It is clear that man, by his own
efforts, cannot attain to righteousness. This state of affairs has been pondered since time immemorial. Job asked, "How should man be just with God?" (Job 9:2.) The answer can come only from God Himself. He sent His Son and " ... made Him to be sin for us, [Him] who knew no sin: THAT WE
MIGHT BE MADE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM" (2Corinthians 5:21).
We, being saved by grace, are "in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us ... righteousness" (I Cor. 1:30).
That righteousness is attained by faith, and is the only way acceptable to God, has always been the one approach. "Even Abraham believed God,
and it was accounted to him for righteousness" (Galatians 3:6).
