    SINCERITY ISN’T RIGHTEOUSNESS


    SINCERITY ISN’T RIGHTEOUSNESS
    For if by one man’s offence death reigned 
    by one; much more they which receive 
    abundance of grace and of the gift of 
    righteousness shall reign in life by one, 
    Jesus Christ (Romans 5:17).
    f r i d a y  22
    In your walk with God, you have to understand 
    that there’s a huge difference between sincerity 
    and righteousness. Sometimes, we think that God should 
    look at our sincerity and count it for righteousness, but 
    it’s not so. No matter how sincere you are, it’ll never 
    amount to righteousness. 
    God doesn’t hear and answer your prayers because 
    you’re sincere, but because you’re righteous; because 
    of Jesus; and your righteousness is the righteousness of 
    Jesus. The Bible says, “Therefore as by the offence of 
    one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; 
    even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came 
    upon all men unto justification of life” (Romans 5:18). 
    Righteousness is what gives you right standing in the 
    presence of God. Your sincerity never gives you right 
    standing before the Father. 
    A  whole  lot  of  Christians  pray  and  cry  to  God, 
    pleading on their sincerity, because they’re not aware 
    of the truth of God’s Word. Never use your “sincerity” 
    as a currency; that’s not what works; it’s your faith—your 
    faith in His righteousness—that produces results. 
    Having been declared righteous, you have a right 
    to be heard in the presence of God; you have peace 
    with  God  (Romans  5:1).  This  didn’t  happen  on  the 
    basis of your “sincerity” or personal effort; it happened 
    because He gave you His righteousness. Never think 
    of God as one you need to “impress” with your good 
    works so He’ll accept you or do anything for you; Jesus 
    already impressed Him in your behalf. 
    So,  when  you  plead  your  case  before  God,  it 
    shouldn’t  be  on  the  basis  of  your  “performance”or  
    self-righteousness. Rather, let it be on the basis of your 
    right standing with Him in Christ Jesus. God’s blessings 
    in  your  life—His  goodwill  towards  you—have  to  do 
    with the righteousness of Jesus Christ; that’s why you 
    can be bold in His presence to make demands in the 
    Name of Jesus. Hallelujah!
    PRAYER
    Dear  heavenly  Father,  I  thank  you  for  my  spirit  is 
    enlightened through your Word. I’m the righteousness 
    of God in Christ Jesus; therefore, I reign in life and 
    exercise  dominion  over  circumstances,  in  Jesus’ 
    Name. Amen.
