Jehovah Tsidkenu – The Lord is Our Righteousness

Jehovah Tsidkenu

The Lord is Our Righteousness

Jeremiah 23:1-6

May 7, 2017

 

Jesus Set the Standard of Righteousness

“For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.”      James 2:10

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory (standard) of God.” Romans 3:23

“…There is none righteous, no, not one:” Romans 3:10

 

Jesus Met the Standard of Righteousness

“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us…”  II Corinthians 5:21

“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God…”                       I Peter 3:18

 

In Jesus We Get the Standard of Righteousness

“…that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” II Corinthians 5:21

“and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith:”                                        Philippians 3:9

 

Apart from Jesus we do not and cannot measure up to God’s Standard!
