In the presence of God by the blood of Jesus Christ we are constantly convicted by the Holy Spirit. We’ve been learning in the past weeks that before we accepted and believed in Jesus Christ as our Savior, the Holy Spirit has been convicting us of our sin, that we would see the need for a Savior. Now that we have been saved by Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit continues to convict us – only this time we are convicted of something else. As Christians we are continually convicted of the fact that we are the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ.
We are sinners in need of righteousness, not earned, but received from God through Jesus Christ. We live and move by the Holy Spirit. God did not intend for us to sit back and relax while the rest of the world walks idly on into certain death. We are to do what we were made for. By being saved we are pointed towards where we should be and what we should be doing. It is only through Jesus Christ that we are truly productive.
Righteousness has its ties with productivity.
We are righteous only in Jesus Christ.
God bless us all.
