He Made You Righteous (2 Corinthians 5:21)

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.

2 Corinthians 5:21 (KJV)

On the cross the great exchange took place. Jesus took all of our sin, and in exchange we received His righteousness. As a result we have been made one hundred percent righteous in the eyes of God. Receiving our identity as the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus is key for us living the victorious life.

Abundance Of Grace (Romans 5:17)

For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

Romans 5:17 (KJV)

Righteousness is a gift we receive, not a reward we work for. When we receive this unspeakable gift through our faith in the finished works of Jesus, we enter into the abundance of God’s grace—His unmerited favor. His grace being abundant means it is sufficient to wipe out all of our past mistakes, and to supply us with everything that is needed in order for us to live a successful and overcoming life.
