Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,
Do you talk of your righteousness? You should! You’re either mostly talking about your weaknesses, your sin consciousness and guilt, your frustrations, your lack and pains, or you often talk about your amazing son-ship, your victories, your glories and your fullness and completeness in Christ.
As a beloved son of God, it is beneath you to be talking about weakness and failure. How would you act if you were a part of the royal family? Well, in reality your are in the royal family.
1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. KJV
That Scripture doesn’t say we’re going to be sons of God someday in the sweet by and by, it says right now, we are the sons, the God-kind, God like sons. This is exciting! When Jesus appears, you will be amazed at how much He looks like you. Why is that? You carry His nature of righteousness. The more you acknowledge and talk about your son-ship, the more you reign in life.
Look at 1 John 4:17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the Day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. NKJV
Just think about that. In the Day of Judgment, some people’s knees will be knocking in fear. But not yours righteous one. You’ll be full of boldness…because you are like Jesus right now. As He is right now, so are we…not in the world to come, right now. How is He today? HE IS RIGHTEOUS. He’s pure and holy, completely loved and accepted by the Father. How about you? The good news is the Father sees you as righteous as He sees Jesus and loves you as much as He loves Jesus. God loves the whole world, but as Father, He has a special love for His sons who are in Christ Jesus.
You ought to be talking about it. “I am a righteous son of God. Daddy loves me as much as He loves Jesus. He hears and answers my prayers as He does those of Jesus.“ E.W. Kenyon wrote (in his book titled Two Kinds of Righteous-ness)…”Righteousness restores to man all that he lost in the fall plus a new relationship as a son with all its privileges as surely as God made Jesus sin with our unrighteousness.” Did the Father make Jesus sin with our unrighteousness on the cross? (See 2 Cor. 5:21) Then this gift of righteousness has now given us all that Adam had before the fall and more. All that Christ is today!
Confess: I will talk and walk with this consciousness of my privileged son-ship in Christ. I will live the higher holy life because I am righteous in Him.
