Since the Jews knew that God would embrace a nation that did not adhere to the rites and ceremonies that were delivered to them, then it should have been evident that these things were not prerequisites to salvation or coming to righteousness with God. "For with the heart man believes unto righteousness" says Romans 10:10.
Thank you Heavenly Father for imputing Your righteousness upon me through Yahshua Ha'Mashiach (Jesus the Christ). I don't make light of your law and I know that it has not passed away, but we are delivered from the law that we should serve in newness of spirit. I realize that this is not because of my faithfulness but by His faithfulness in that He loved me and gave Himself for me. Father, It is You who has counted my faith as righteousness. It is You who has called me Your child, heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ. It is You who has qualified me for increase, more and more, me and my children. It is You who desires that I prosper and be in health as my soul prospers. I humbly receive all by faith in the name of Yahshua (Jesus).
I am a new creature in Christ. Old things have passed away and the fullness of my newness shall be seen. All fear, doubt and stress have passed away. All addictions and unhealthy cravings have passed away. All feelings of inadequacy and shame have passed away. Regardless to what is said about me or my past, true or false, I am the Righteousness of God. His overwhelming love reminds me and convinces me daily. I am fit to work for the Kingdom of my Father. I am destined to reign with Him. Everyday I make better and better decisions, and everyday I see better and better results.
