Morning Message of Motivation
The New Testament 15
By Rev. Robert Ampiah-Kwofi
Righteousness is our right standing with God.
It is God’s most vital provision for us in the New Covenant.
2 Corinthians 5:21 NKJV
“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
Almighty God provided Abraham with righteousness because He wanted to enter into a covenant with him. Covenant partners must be in right standing with each other.
Genesis 15:1 NKJV
“After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”
Abraham was however not satisfied because he still didn’t have an heir.
Genesis 15:2 NIV
“But Abram said, “Sovereign Lord, what can you give me since I remain childless and the one who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?”
God reassured Abraham that his own son would be his heir.
Genesis 15:4 NIV
“Then the word of the Lord came to him: “This man will not be your heir, but a son who is your own flesh and blood will be your heir.”
The God asked him to count the stars.
Genesis 15:5 NIV
“He took him outside and said, “Look up at the sky and count the stars—if indeed you can count them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”
Then Abraham believed God.
Genesis 15:6 NIV
“Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.”
Abraham didn’t have the 100% good works required to become righteous before God.
However Abraham had faith.
God counted his faith to be his righteousness.
Abraham was now righteous before God.
God made a covenant with him that same day.
Genesis 15:18 NKJV
“On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates—”
You are the righteousness of God in Christ.
You have a right standing with God.
You are God’s covenant partner.
May Almighty God supply all your need abundantly, in Jesus name.
