Joseph Prince (November-18-2022) Daily Devotional: The Gracious Gift of Righteousness
For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.- Romans 5:17
If you struggle, as many believers do, with whether you deserve to be blessed, favored, and victorious, you are asking the wrong question.
The question you should be asking is, does Jesus deserve to be blessed, favored, and victorious? Because you are in Christ, having a blessed future is not contingent on how much you strive to be perfect or how hard you work at changing yourself. It is contingent on the person of Jesus.
The Bible proclaims, “as He is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17). Does Jesus deserve to be blessed, favored, and victorious? Then so do you! This is what being in Christ Jesus means. It means that today, God assesses you and sees you based on the perfection of Jesus Christ. Jesus’ righteousness is your righteousness. In fact, the Bible explains that because Jesus, who knew no sin, became sin for us, we are now the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Cor. 5:21).
“Righteousness” is a legal term. It means to have right standing before God. Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Biblical Words defines righteousness as “that gracious gift of God to men whereby all who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ are brought into right relationship with God.” In other words, your right standing before God is based upon Jesus’ right standing before God.
Today, you are as righteous as Jesus because your righteousness is from Him. He purchased it for you at the cross. When you received Him as your Lord and Savior, He took away all your unrighteousness once and for all and gave you His gift of righteousness. This righteousness is something that you can never obtain or achieve through your right doing; it can only be received by your right believing in Jesus.
And do you know what happens when you receive this gift of righteousness? The Bible declares that “those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ” (Rom. 5:17). Hey, when you reign, your addictions don’t. When you reign, sicknesses don’t. When you reign, fear, depression, and every obstacle that is obstructing you from living your life to the fullest will be torn down and flushed out!
Bishop TD Jakes - Sermon: A Gift To The Giver! Jesus was God’s living gift to a dying world, a gift we’re still unwrapping 2,000 years later. Jesus’ entire glory, not yet fully exposed. That's the nature of God's gift-giving: the present of "shall be." He'll give a gift that doesn't fit where you are but where you're going. The anointing to be a King, while you're still a “shepherd boy.” To give to the Giver is to unlock the future. This Christmas, get your praise right. Put your future in God’s hands, and give your life to Him. For He'll never ask for something He didn't first give. Scripture: Matthew 2:1-12 (NIV)
Amir Tsarfati (June-26-2020) Message: Irrevocable Gifts and Callings. The word of God says that God is not giving up on Israel. The gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. God never changed His mind on Israel. God never turned His back to Israel. God never said, "The church is the new Israel."
Steven Furtick (February-19-2020) Sermon: Let Go And Receive The Gift. There may be moments when you can't feel God, but that doesn't mean He left you. It just might look different than you expected.
Joyce Meyer (January-23-2020) Daily Devotion: God’s Free Gift.
The word freely means “spontaneously; without constraint or persuasion.”
When the Lord, in the person of the Holy Spirit, comes to dwell in our heart, He brings love with Him, because God is love (see 1 John 4:8).
It’s important to ask what we are doing with the love of God that has been freely given to us. Are we rejecting it because we don’t think we are valuable enough to be loved? Do we believe God is like other people who have rejected and hurt us? Or are we receiving His love by faith, believing that He is greater than our failures and weaknesses?
With God’s help, we can love ourselves—not in a selfish way, but in a balanced, godly way... a way that simply affirms God’s creation as essentially good and right. God’s plan is this: for us to receive His love freely, love ourselves in a godly way, generously love Him in return, and finally love all the people who come into our lives.
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for Your abundant love. Help me to freely receive Your love, love myself, then pour out Your love to those around me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
