Brethren, It is in great joy that the Holy Spirit made this mystery about righteousness known to us. Righteousness is having good standing with God, being righteous is walking in good conscience and conducts towards God at all times. Through the scriptures, we recognized that the nature of a Christian is righteousness. What makes you different from an unbeliever, a wicked person is your ability to know you are to do what is right at all times.
Righteousness is a protective gear, remember “the breastplate of righteousness” keeps your heart and vital parts of your body from attacks. This makes the topic of Righteousness very important in this Christian journey.
“For being ignorant of the righteousness that comes from God, not seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness.” Romans 10:3
The scripture opens our understanding to the existence of two different forms of righteousness. There is a type of Righteousness established by men and the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
The righteousness established by men is when men try to attain right standing with God on our own strength and actions. The reason why many people can not make it to the kingdom of God. All because they wanted to establish their own righteousness.
Brethren you see, God is the source of all Holiness, the pioneer of all Righteousness, therefore you can’t live a righteous life outside his presence. “For being ignorant of the righteousness that comes from God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness.” Wow, most of the Jews lost their portion in the cake of heirship just because they were IGNORANT of GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Yes they forgot they were not on their own, they weren’t just mistakes on this Earth so they can’t live on their own. They lost it because they did not know today brethren. There is a type of Righteousness that comes from God the day you accept Christ into your life. This type qualifies you no matter the number of wrongs. Remember Abraham he received God’s righteousness.
If only we can desist from the acts of those people who didn’t seek after God’s own righteousness in Christ Jesus, our righteousness will be that of God because we have submitted to Him.
He is God he shows mercy on whoever he wants to show mercy. Don’t try to establish your own Righteousness, but seek after God’s own Righteousness.
