“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.” -Matthew 6:6
The Apostle Paul says, “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” -2 Cor. 5:21
On the cross, Jesus took our sin and it’s consequence upon Himself. In Him we are cleansed, forgiven and new. The old nature and it’s burdens are washed away, when we place our faith and hope in Him.
But the blessings and return go beyond this when you become follow Jesus. Paul say that when we become followers of Jesus, we also “become the righteousness of God” in Jesus. In another scripture passage, Paul calls us “new creations IN CHRIST”, where our old sin nature is wiped away and His righteousness is placed on us.
In Matthew’s gospel it says, “blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled-satisfied.

Do you desire to live a good life and one with satisfaction?

Are you struggling to overcome a vice and sin issue?
Do you hunger and thirst for His work in you and His work of righteousness?
The secret to righteousness is not our effort or our will to be good people. The secret is found in our spending time with the only perfect One, the One who conquered sin and death, the One who places His righteousness upon each of us like a new spotless white robe.
Hunger and thirst for him; prioritize him; and He will give you His righteousness.
Yes! The darkness in life is ominous! Some of the time its even sobering to it inside ourselves.
But by placing our faith in Him, the darkness can never consume the light of the Gospel in us.
Spoiler alert!
The great narrative of history cumulates with a resounding shout!
Death and sin are swallowed in sweet victory. Our greatest foes are vanquished by LOVE INCARNATE!
All things are made new in Him.
The impossible is made possible in Him!
How can you spend time with Him today? Maybe reading or listening to a portion of His Word and being ready for Him to speak, praying, meditating on a scripture passage, or by being present with others who are seeking him.
