The Righteousness of God

What do you know about the righteousness of God? Not only His personal and essential righteousness, but the righteousness and holiness He requires of all who would “see the Lord,” and the righteousness He has purchased and provided for them? I can show you from the Scriptures the awful and awesome importance of the subject.

Jeremiah 23:5-6; The very NAME of our Redeemer is, “THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD.”

Romans 1:16-17; The heart and essence of the gospel is to reveal “THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD.”

2ndCorinthians 5:20-21; Our Lord’s being made sin and dying on the cross for us was in order that we might be made, “THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD in Him.”

Romans 10:1-4; The Apostle pronounces all religious people unsaved who are ignorant of “THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD” and who are seeking to establish their own righteousness.

Matthew 5:20; Our Lord declares that a person will not enter into the kingdom of God unless he has a righteousness that exceeds any holiness produced by the best man on earth. This righteousness is “THE RIGHTEOUNESS OF GOD” which is by the obedience, faithfulness, and death of the Lord Jesus Christ.

“David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works.” (Romans 4:6)

“Christ Jesus is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 10:4)
