Righteous

The problem with our view of righteousness is that we focus on man’s version rather than God’s.

II Corinthians 5:21 For He (God the Father) hath made Him (Jesus) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.

Proverbs 16:25 There is a way that seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Philippians 3:9 And be found in Him (Jesus Christ), 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:

    Righteousness – Made right before GOD from His “Point of View.” He loves me and sees Christ in me.

      Absolutely! Only in Him do we have a view of righteousness. Only in Him. “For in Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And you are complete in Him, which is the head of all principality and power:” Colossians 2:9-10
