Sometimes we may wonder about the Christian life. There is so much conflict because Satan opposes everything the Christian does. I just want to remind you about something:
When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
HE IS OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS
Righteousness is a person. We cannot attain God’s standard of righteousness. It is impossible.
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
Faith is counted for righteousness. Faith in What? Faith in Jesus Christ.
But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
HE IS OUR HOLINESS
1 Corinthians 1:30
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
Let’s look at the word “sanctification.” Is the translation of a word that is translated holiness 5 times. Christ is our life and since our life has to be holy, God has made Christ unto us “Sanctification” or “holiness.” Do you believe that Christ is holy? Then you are holy because He is your holiness.
HE IS OUR ASSURANCE
Jesus is the assurance of our present and future salvation. When the Lord saved us, He gave us a guarantee of future salvation. Our spirits are regenerated when we are saved and our bodies will be glorified at the rapture or resurrection.
Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
His intercessory ministry secures us for eternity.
There is no life like the Christian life, because Jesus is our life.
