His Name Is “The Lord Our Righteousness”

Yesterday’s post highlighted the importance of leading others to righteousness.  The only effective and faithful way to do this is to lead them to our Lord, for – as Jeremiah says in Jeremiah 23:16 and again in 33:16 – the Lord is our righteousness.  For this reason, Paul says in 2 Corinthians 5:21 that we are made the righteousness of God in Him.

Only in Him do we find the true knowledge of the commandments of God, which can be summed up in the word love.  Only in Him do we find the strength to keep those commandments at all times, for in His eyes we find the inspiration and power to obey.

Be done with lesser things like church building and ministry building.  Acknowledge the Lord at all times for truly He is all that we need.

The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in terms familiar to those who read the Bible, and to help others become more familiar with the Bible. For those unfamiliar with the Bible, look to the blog A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom .
