Righteous means Righteous
Author: Jerry Savelle
When you start to see yourself as completely righteous, your righteous nature will automatically start to manifest.
“Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin” (Romans 6:6).
“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).
“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).
Jesus didn’t come to help you overcome your sinful nature, He came to completely remove it. Jesus took away all your unrighteousness and gave you His righteousness. Jesus did away with your old sinful nature completely and gave you His nature.
You are not partly righteous and partly unrighteous. You do not have to struggle with a split personality! When Jesus made you righteous, He didn’t do a partial job, He made all things new. He made you a completely new creation.
When you start to see yourself as completely righteous, your righteous nature will automatically start to manifest. You will start to think like and act like a righteous person.
Confession: Thank You, Father, for completely removing my old sinful nature and for giving me Your own righteous nature. I walk by faith that I am now righteous and believe that my righteous nature is going to manifest from the inside out today.
