Righteousness is the nature of God; His ability to do and be right always. That same nature is transferred to your spirit when you receive Christ into your heart to be born again. Then, automatically you are brought into oneness with God; His character of rightness is worked in your spirit . The result of this is that you can stand in Gods’ presence with boldness ,without condemnation ,inferiority, shame or guilt ; because you’ve become the righteousness of God through Christ Jesus( God made him who had no sin to be sin[a] for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:21). God expects you to live this life of righteousness daily . Your life should be the expression of the life He’s given you. For example, when a child is born, he is characteristically human; but starts building and developing his innate human characteristics . He doesn’t have the nature of a dog or a camel ,but of a human being. But he must develop that nature through knowledge and fellowship with other humans . To talk, crawl, sit up, babble and talk. In the same way, when you became a child of God, you automatically receive the righteousness of God. Even if you stray, it wouldn’t be because you’re no longer righteous, but because you haven’t grown or matured in the knowledge of God. A child who is not taught how to walk, may never walk; not because he doesn’t have the ability, but because he was never taught, likewise as to grow as a mature Christian and be able to live righteously to the glory of God, you must be taught to live by Gods’ word . This is one of the reasons you must become a committed member in a local church . In church you’re taught how to live the life of righteousness which you’ve received in Christ Jesus. As you live out that righteousness, many will witness the perfection and inner beauty of divinity in you. Glory be to God! Hallelujah!!
