2Corinthians 5:21 says “For He (God) has made Him (Jesus) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Christ.”
Have you ever had the enemy come at you with his lies and deceit, telling you that your are nothing more than a sinner and failure. Especially when you make a mistake he comes to you with condemnation and fear. The Word of God say in Revelation 12:10, that he is the accuser of the brethren. Its at times like these we must stand up to him, not in our own ability, but in God’s ability and in His righteousness which He has given to us. The Bible says “we have been made the righteousness of God in Christ” (2Corinthians 5:21). I want to point out that you are still righteous even in the midst of making a mistake. You still have a relationship with your Heavenly Father in the midst of sinning. Righteousness isn’t taken from me in a moment of weakness. I am who I am because I am in Christ. We need to get the attention off of us and onto the ability of Christ! Jesus’ blood is more than enough for you and me. Do we make mistakes from time to time, yes. Should they keep us down in the dirt? No! Righteous men and women fall sometimes, by they get up again(Proverbs 24:16)!
So the next time the devil comes at you trying to beat you down with condemnation, resist him and tell him to GREATER TRUTH of God’s Word! 1Jonh 1:9, “If we confess our sins, He (God) is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit.”
Final, this scripture is very powerful describes just how great our Heavenly Fathers love is toward us. I would like for you to read Romans 8:33-39. (I also encourage you to look these scriptures up in your own Bible. When you take the time to study it out for ourselves, deeper revelation of Gods Word comes.)
Romans 8:33-39 “Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
