Righteousness is the ability to stand in the presence of the Father without a sense of guilt, condemnation, or inferiority as if sin never existed.
This quote from Mr. Adair is a truth bomb. This is a truth that if we can believe it, changes everything.
- Stand boldly in the presence of God.
- Feel truly clean of all guilt.
- Know that because of Jesus you have a stable foundation to stand on.
“Wake up from your drunken stupor, as is right, and do not go on sinning. For some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame.”
– 1 Corinthians 15:34 ESV
When Paul says to awaken he’s not telling you to wake up from a peaceful sleep to a nightmare. You’re awakening to righteousness, not how bad you were.
- You are not who you were before Jesus changed you.
- You are not who you used to be before His grace transformed you.
- You are who He designed you to be from the foundations of the world.
- You are the divine idea in the mind of God that He enjoyed so much He created you.
It’s all Him. From beginning to end. If you look closely and objectively you can see He has provided everything for us.
- He’s given you the ability to be with Him.
- He’s given you the ability to love Him.
- He’s given you the ability to access His righteousness.
- He’s given you the ability to perfectly display Him in the earth.
- He’s given you the ability to be who you really are.
