Christ My Righteousness

 

“But of Him you are in Christ Jesus,ImageProxy.mvc
who became for us wisdom from God — and righteousness
and sanctification and redemption.”
1 CORINTHIANS 1:30

This is a very rich verse. We have already seen how the Lord Jesus is given to be our Life. Upon that basis we can lay claim to everything else. Here we see that to those of us who are in Christ, He is made to be our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. It does not say that He gives these things to us, but that He is these things in us.

There will never be words adequate enough that will thank our Savior for what He has done for us, but Lord Jesus we want You to know, that we do love You so and appreciate what you have done for us ….

My Cross

Surely our griefs He Himself bore,
And our sorrows He carried;
Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten of God, and afflicted.
But He was pierced through for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our iniquities;
The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him,
And by His scourging we are healed.
All of us like sheep have gone astray,
Each of us has turned to his own way;
But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all
To fall on Him.
~Isaiah 53:4-6~

It is humbling and truly breath taking to see the weight that Jesus carried for each one of us. How He bore all OUR sorrows, pierced for OUR transgressions and crushed for OUR iniquities. He laid down His life for OUR sinful lives even though we would not be born for another 2,000 years.

So what are we doing with this Earth shattering scripture? It’s impossible to read the…

Six steps to walking humbly with God

Jesus said, “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls” (Matthew 11:29). To be like Christ, we must follow His example of humility. How can we learn to walk humbly with our God?

1. Remember who’s in charge—and praise Him!
It’s hard keep things in perspective if we don’t remember who is Lord! Psalm 90 is a good place to start.

2. Pray for a humble heart.
Ask the Holy Spirit to open your eyes to the ways in which pride gets in the way of your relationships.

3. Pay more attention to your own faults than to the flaws of others.
Confess your failings, but don’t obsess—move on!

4. Don’t hide behind your dignity—it’s pride’s favorite hiding place.
Your real value lies in God’s eyes, not in the eyes of the world. Remember: “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble” (1 Peter 5:5).

5. Try not to watch yourself worship.
Give all of your heart and mind to God.

6. Serve others.
The fastest way to humility is the way Christ chose. “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve…” (Mark 10:45).
