Being filled with the fruits of righteousness “by” Christ

Imputed righteousness is an act of God’s Grace that takes away guilt from the human conscience caused from all sins of the past. When forgiveness and remission of sins takes place God declares the believing soul, “Righteous”. When God speaks pardon to the human soul…no longer is this believer in Christ criminal in the eyes of God. Natural rebellion against God is taken away. The heart is forgiven from all sins of the past life and made clean and holy. Imputed righteousness, a gift of God’s Grace… is the beginning of a new life in Christ.

Romans 3:23-26…Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

Getting right in Christ (imputed righteousness) is a blessing of God’s Grace where the heart is made clean and the past life of sin is removed. Staying right in Christ (imparted righteousness) is even a greater blessing of God’s Grace but relates to the present tense heart and life of a child of God. Staying right is a present tense operation of God’s Grace that is “imparted” to the human soul…by a living active Christ. Righteousness by Grace keeps the heart clean and the conscience clear from the guilt of sin. Being filled with the fruits of righteousness by Christ points to a “present tense” impartation of righteousness. Imparted righteousness enables the believer to keep his Christian heart and life in constant harmony with  the Spirit of God.

Philippians 1:11…Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ

Being “filled” with “fruits” of righteousness, shows fruits plural in meaning. Fruits plural indicate that Salvation is not limited to imputed righteousness for past sins only… and that a child of God can be “filled” with imparted blessings of righteousness everyday of his life as Christian. The righteous heart and life in the eyes of God brings joy, peace, and contentment to the believing soul. So much, that he wants to tell the world about his blessing received, “from and by a living Christ”.

Romans 10:10…With the heart man believeth unto righteousness. With the mouth confession is made unto Salvation.

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio .
