- We are a brand-new spirit creation.
Therefore, if anyone [is] in Christ, [he is] a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV)
- Put on the new spirit man created in true righteousness and holiness
and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. (Ephesians 4:24 NKJV)
God looks at your new spirit. He sees the purity, holiness and the righteousness of Jesus.
- As Jesus is in the world, so are we
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. (1 John 4:17 NKJV)
We must see ourselves as the as the Word says we are. Our body and mind are not perfect but our spirt is created in the image of Christ.
- We receive the gift of righteousness in Christ and reign in life though Jesus
For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:17 NKJV)
- Made righteous by the obedience of Jesus.
For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous. (Romans 5:19 NKJV)
We were born with a sin nature thanks to Adam. We were born again with a righteous nature, the nature of Christ, thanks to Christ.
- Righteous through Jesus. He became our righteousness.
But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God–and righteousness and sanctification and redemption– (1 Corinthians 1:30 NKJV)
- We are the righteous of God in Him
For He made Him who knew no sin [to be] sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. (2 Corinthians 5:21 NKJV)
- It not us. It all Christ.
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the [life] which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. (Galatians 2:20 NKJV)
God loves us more than we can ever imagine. God is not upset or mad at us. God does not hold anything against us. We cannot make God love us anymore than He already does. He does not impute our sins to us. God thinks we are cool. God sees us as the righteousness of Christ. He looks at us just like He looks at Christ. Our sin is not greater than God’s grace. Satan has no right to accuse us because God does not. We are right in God an that’s it. Every time the enemy tries to accuse, our answer should always be Jesus. When we really know who we are in Christ and finally see ourselves the way God sees us, we are untouchable in Him. In the spirit we are as perfect and as complete as we will ever be. Our mind just needs to be renewed to who we really are in Christ. You are right in God’s eyes.
I enCOURAGE you to change your picture. It will change your life. You are the righteousness of God in Christ.
