25. You are righteous, holy and blameless

Last week we learned that we are as Jesus in this world. He lives in His fullness within us. We are His Body here on earth, His hands and feet. We are His representatives in all fullness. We need to reach out as He did and help as He did. He has given us the authority to do so and it is expected of us to use it. Last week we saw how John commanded us to walk as Jesus walked. It is not an option, or if you feel like it. If we believe in Him we must walk like He walked. We are His church and we are there to lure people in. Therefore He has recreated our spirit to be like Him, holy and righteous. Let us look at a couple of Scriptures confirming this statement:

"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish." Ephesians 5:25-27

"...and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness." Ephesians 4:24

"And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, blameless, and above reproach in His sight." Colossians 1:21, 22

You are already holy, without blemish, blameless, above reproach and righteous. You already are. 'But how is that possible?' You might ask. 'I still sin, I still get angry, I still yell, I still get jealous etc. How can I be righteous and holy then?' You see it is because you are holy and righteous in your new creation, your new spirit. Your soul where all your emotions lie just need to align with what is true of you in the spirit. There we are back again to the mind renewal process that needs to take place. You need to renew your mind (your soul), to think of yourself as you are in the spirit. The more you align your thoughts towards the spirit, the more you will become who you truly are in the spirit.

Jesus took all the punishment for your sins, and imparted a new nature to you. This new nature, your new spirit, can now enter into the Father's presence, because it is without sin, righteous and holy. Without this new nature you would never have been able to pray to our Father. Do you realise that? Only holiness and righteousness can come into His presence.

So what is it to be holy and righteous exactly? Synonyms for holy are sacred and blessed. And the definition for righteousness is 'the quality of being morally right'. Therefore it would seem that we are blessed in the sacred presence of God doing the morally right thing. We have been created to be perfect, as He is perfect. The right order has been restored. We have once again been created in His image, morally upright as He is. And therefore we can come boldly to the throne room of grace. We are His dearly loved children and He rejoices in us.

Therefore make it your life's mission to change into who you really are in the spirit. Make mind renewal your top priority. Once you renew your mind to think as He does, and once you become mind, soul and body who you truly are in the spirit, the world will be your oyster. God's Spirit will flow mightily through you and use you to change this world into a better place. What a wonderful prospect. One we should all aspire to. Jesus came to open the way, we have no excuses anymore. Come on, what are you waiting for?

Thank you Father for creating such a wonderful new person on the inside of me. Thank you that I am truly holy, righteous and blameless in Your sight. Please help me to manifest this in reality, help me to grow in my mind into the fullness that I am in You. Thank you for this privilege. Thank you Jesus. Amen
