2 Corinthians 5: 21 – He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
So how do we measure Righteousness?
It should be easy right? We just have to look at your behaviour and we will know how righteous you are. Maybe we can even come up with some sort of scale and measure which sins are weightier than others, and which good deeds are most righteous?
No, a thousand times no!
How righteous are you? As righteous as Jesus is. That’s God’s final word on the measure of your righteousness. You have no right to think of yourself as any less or any more. Just as righteous as Jesus is…and that, I think, should be about enough right?
