Christ Jesus my righteousness

1Cor 1:30
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

Christ is made unto me righteousness. His righteousness have I clothed upon, mine own is as filthy rags not acceptable before the holy father

All have sinned and therefore fell short of God's righteousness.
There is a difference between righteousness and right living. Right living is good but it is not righteousness.

Righteousness ...dikaiosune ..gk ... equity,.... innocent, ...holy ...just.

God declared you innocent, acquitted and discharge not guilty

Jesus was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification. Rom 4:25

We are justified, formally declared innocent, we have peace with God. Rom 5:1

Righteousness is imputed to the human spirit which gives it the ability to do right. It must be received.

For ...they which receive...the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.

...by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

For as by one manís disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Rom 5:17-19

So Jesus makes us righteous by the shedding of his blood. Have you received the righteousness of God?

We are the body of Christ, the express image of the unseen Christ seated on the throne.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2Cor 5:17

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

Made righteous ..2 Cor 5:21... you have the ability to stand before God without guilt or condemnation but with boldness.

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Heb 4:16

Righteousness is the spiritual force for the ability to do right, or to live right.

Clothed with the breast plate of righteousness. Eph 6:14 against every arrow of sin of unrighteousness.

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Rom 10:10

Christ Jesus is made unto me righteousness and with the heart I believeth unto righteousness; and with my mouth confession is made unto salvation which include healing, blessing and all that I desire. Amen!
