For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. –2 Corinthians 5:21 NKJV
When the Holy Spirit convicts you of sin and you accept Jesus as your Savior, God declares you righteous because of what Jesus has done on the Cross. It takes a supernatural work of God to help you comprehend your new condition in Jesus.
This realization is just as supernatural as the moment you recognized you were lost in your sins.
According to Pastor Rick Renner, you are declared righteous because of the Cross. Righteousness means you are in right standing with God. Let the Holy Spirit open your eyes and ears to see and hear the truth about who God has made you to be! Stop feeling unworthy.
Jesus died for you and His blood has cleansed you. Declare today the righteousness you have received and know that you are a child of God.
- Know that you are in right standing with God and are declared worthy when you accepted Jesus as your personal Savior.
- Thank the Holy Spirit for being your Helper through every trial that comes your way.
