"You disowned the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murder be released to you."
Righteous. A word that can never describe us as humans. We are sinners. We can never be right with God on our own. Once we believe that Jesus saved us from the penalty of sin, we are washed by His blood, meaning all of our sins are wiped away. Gone forever. We are a clean vessel to serve God. We are now in a right relationship with God. Through Jesus' righteousness we are made righteous!!
How awesome is that?! All we have to do is believe and say "yes" to God. Have you taken that first step and asked God to be part of your life and given your life over to Him? You can go anytime to Him and ask for forgiveness and He will respond with a loving embrace. Even if you are already His, we need to be regularly cleansed from the filth that infests our hearts.
How will you praise Jesus because He has made you right with God? We can have a real and personal relationship now because God sees us through the lens of Jesus, the Pure and Holy One. Therefore, God sees us as pure, holy, and righteous. Can I get an Amen?! THAT deserves praise and worship from the rooftops.
In His Love,
