TOPIC: The Righteousness Of Jesus Christ (Rhapsody of Realities 27 January 2024)

For if by one man’s offense, death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ (Romans 5:17).

Rhapsody Of Realities For Today’s MESSAGE:

I love what Paul said in Philippians 3:8-9, referring to the supremacy and sublimity of righteousness by faith in Jesus Christ. He said, “…that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.”

When you confessed the Lordship of Jesus over your life, His righteousness was imparted to you. Christ’s righteousness is perfect; it can’t be improved as you can’t improve on excellence. Nothing you do today will make you more or less righteous before God. When God looks at you, He sees the righteousness of Christ.

Jesus was righteous before God, and He was the only one who qualified to be our substitute, being the only sinless one, and He gave you His qualification of righteousness. God accepted the qualification of Jesus on your behalf. Thus, you’re no longer living by your righteousness but by the righteousness of Jesus Christ.

Romans 5:1 says, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” To be “justified” means your faith in Christ Jesus acquits you; you’re declared righteous as though you never sinned. Now, you have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Sadly, there are Christians who are still struggling to be righteous. But we couldn’t attain righteousness by ourselves, so He gave us His righteousness. You’re as honest as Jesus is honest, because He substituted His righteousness for your sin-nature when you confessed His Lordship over your life. What a fantastic reality! Praise God.


I’ve received abundant grace and the gift of righteousness to reign in life by one Jesus Christ! The ability to be correct, to do right, and to produce fruits and works of righteousness is inherent in my spirit. I’m living by the righteousness of Jesus Christ. I can stand before God now and always, confidently serving Him in righteousness and true holiness. Hallelujah!


2 Corinthians 5:21: For he hath made him sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Romans 5:17-19: 17 For if by one man’s offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18 Therefore as by the offense of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so, by the righteousness of one, the gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

Matthew 19:1-15; Exodus 13-14

Acts 13:1-12; Job 24-25
