“It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness, and redemption.” 1 Corinthians 1:30
Paul in Ephesus 6 encouraged believers to wear the full armor of God. One armor, he said, was the breastplate of righteousness.
This breastplate only comes from Jesus because He is our righteousness. In Him, we are made right and He has transformed us to be worthy sons and daughters of God.
One sure way to check if you are really wearing Jesus’ righteousness is by looking at your fruit.
We cannot cheat our journey in Christ because it will show in our fruits, for our fruits do not deceive. What you sow, you will reap. If you are sowing seeds of Christlikeness, you will reap Christlikeness. If you are sowing seeds of hypocrisy, then you will reap the destruction hypocrisy brings.
But, praise be to Jesus because He has promised in His word that if we believe in Him, we are saved and transformed for His glory. Shalom!
