MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to
all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
____WHAT RIGHTEOUSNESS MEANS
[part 2 of 7]
Comes To Us In The New Creation
*____Righteousness comes to us in the New Creation. It restores our standing before God. It takes away
the old Sin-Consciousness that has crippled and robbed us of all our spiritual initiative, confidence and assurance in His presence. It restores to man a standing before the Father on the same ground that Jesus enjoyed in His earth walk.
____Remember the fearlessness of Jesus in the presence of the Father, His fearlessness before Satan.
He had a legal right in the Father's presence. He knew He was Master of Satan and all his forces.
____Remember how fearless He was in the storm, and what an absolute
Ruler He was over the laws of nature. He was not afraid to say to dead Lazarus, even in the presence of a large number of people, "Lazarus, come forth." He had no sense of inferiority in the presence of death. He had no sense of inferiority in the presence
of disease. He was not afraid to speak to the maimed and command them to become whole.
____Righteousness is a masterful thing.
____The problem is: Has God restored Righteousness to man ? That is the reason we are writing this little hook. We are trying to answer that age old problem.
