Let’s look at the biblical truths.
“and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” – Ephesians 4:24
“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” – 2 Corinthians 5:21
“Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” – 1 Peter 2:24
Now that you know what you have been called, begin to walk in righteousness. Remember you are covered by Jesus. Fall down, get back up and walk in His righteousness. You’ve been called to do so.
