Beloved, how was your weekend? Thank God for another beautiful week ahead of us, is packed with great things that the Spirit of God will deliver to us as a group and as an individual too. So be ready and get set as day go by.

We are gradually approaching the remembrance of the day our Lord Jesus died on the cross to set us free from all the works of satan, sin, and sorrow. Beloveth, join me to sing this song- the blood of Jesus set me free from sin and sorrow, the blood of Jesus set me free.” “It is a great thing to serve Jesus, it is a great thing to serve Jesus, it is a great thing to serve Jesus of working in the light of God.”

Beloved, thank God for the topic before us what a great empowerment you will have after going it. Thank God for the righteousness of Christ upon whom we are standing. But alas satan deceives many to believe that they are standing on their righteousness against the righteousness of Christ.

Thank God for our Lord Jesus whose death redeemed us from sin and sorrow and translates us to eternal glory.

Join us as we discover the more below:

Christ’s Righteousness

For I do not trust in my bow, and my sword does not bring me victory. But You give us victory over our foes.—Psalm 44:6-7

 

When Paul talks about the “righteousness like armor on your chest” in Ephesians 6:14, is he talking about our righteousness or Christ’s righteousness?

I believe he is talking about Christ’s righteousness. That is not to say, of course, that our own righteousness (our moral uprightness) is unimportant, for as Paul points out in 2 Corinthians 6:7, our righteousness can be a definite defense against Satan. In Ephesians 6, however, the emphasis is not on our righteousness in Christ, but Christ’s righteousness in us.

So how does putting on the breastplate of righteousness act as a spiritual defense against the wiles of the Devil? Take, for example, those people who have definitely surrendered their lives to Christ but whom Satan afflicts with a feeling that they are not good enough to be saved. Why do they have such feelings? The answer is simple—they have taken their eyes off Christ and His righteousness and have focused on themselves and their righteousness. And in doing that, they have played right into the Devil’s hands.

You see, the Devil can find all kinds of flaws and blemishes in your righteousness, but he can find nothing wrong with the righteousness of Christ. The way to withstand an attack like this, then, is to put on the breastplate of righteousness. In other words, remind yourself and Satan that you stand not on your own merits but on Christ’s. This may sound simple, even simplistic to some, but I have lived long enough to see people latch on to it and come from the depths of emotional distress to the heights of spiritual exaltation.

Prayer

Lord Jesus, help me to latch onto it. Make it crystal clear to my spirit that although the Devil can find many flaws in my righteousness, he cannot find a single flaw in Yours. I rest my case—on You. Thank You, dear Lord. Amen.

What is our righteousness like?

What was Paul’s declaration?

Beloved, thank God for the righteousness of Christ upon whose righteousness we stand. Beloved, it is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our sight.  Thank You Father for the righteousness of Christ on whose righteousness we stand. The accuser of the brethren has been defeated; Christ righteousness has set us free and redeemed us from eternal fire.

Beloved, on this note we declare the week open, go in the strength of Lord and by the grace of God we will return with testimonies at the end in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
