Righteousness

Isaiah Chapter 53

The Golden Passional of the Old Testament - Righteousness

1. God is Righteous (Joh 17:25). So is the Lord Jesus (1Jn 2:1).

2. Man is Incapable of Righteousness (Isa 64:6; Rom 3:10). Sin is any want of conformity to the character of God, whether it be in act, disposition, or state.

3. Yet there have been some Men and Women who were Righteous (Luk 1:6). Indeed it is one of the names of the true Christian.

4. How is this Possible?

a. God alone can make this possible (Rom 5:17).

b. And then, only through Christ (Rom 3:21-22).

c. It first is imputed (Rom 3:22; 1Co 1:30).

d. Then imparted, indeed is one characteristic of the New Birth (Rom 8:4; 1Jn 2:29).

e. Promises for those who hunger and seek after it (Mat 5:6; Mat 6:33).
