Are Christian’s righteous?

Yes…but righteousness does not come from human achievement, human advancement, or human involvement. Righteousness comes from the power of God’s Grace and is placed within the character and make-up of the believer in Christ. Righteousness has nothing to do with “self” in any manner. Righteousness is a state of being that comes from God in exchange for your pardon from sin and personal trust in Christ. Righteousness is the guilt free position of a believer in the eyes of God.  The guilt free position of a believer is when God’s Grace “removes” the guilty conscience (caused from all past sins) and puts man in “right-standing” with God. Old Testament saints could not testify to this great blessing because Grace never came until Christ died and rose from the grave.

Power for man to do right is given from above. Power for man to quit sin is given from above. Power for man to continue a “right life” is given from above. This is the beauty and power of God’s Grace today in the Church. Righteousness involves God’s Grace and not man for anything.

In society today the religious world has it backwards. They teach righteousness involves man and God. To the contrary…New Testament righteousness is produced by Christ just like forgiveness is produced by Christ. Holiness is produced by Christ because the clean heart is produced by Christ. Believers in Christ are “made” righteous by Christ. Christ was made sin that knew no sin…that we might be “made” the righteousness of God in Him. By the obedience of Christ many are made righteous. Christians are righteous? The Bible says so. Nothing to be ashamed of. The righteous life is a new life because the old you became the new creation created by Christ.

Righteousness is something God gives. The gift of Salvation that no other religion can offer. Righteousness from Christ the fruit of being adopted into the family of God. United in the Spirit. Born from above. A new heart in rightstanding! A new life in rightstanding! No longer unrighteous but clean and holy in the eyes of God. Received within because of a spiritual birth. No human involvement. Not according to the works we have done…but according to who Christ is.

Are Christians righteous? Yes. Why? Because God made them that way! They trusted Christ and God blessed them with righteousness. Great place to be! Great place to live! Just a great state of being! Right in the eyes of God! Simply put, “Christianity is a right life because Christ made you that way”. That’s why Christianity is not religion!

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 holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does.
