Manufactured Righteousness

I invite you to reflect on the reality that a lifestyle based on manufactured righteousness and self-determined morality is an empty lie. In reality, its building-blocks are like threads of filthy, decaying, worthless rags. It has no strength, no integrity, and no ability to justify itself in the sight of God. Ephesians 4:24 (NKJV) says, “…that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.” The only source of true righteousness is repentance from unbelief, manufactured righteousness and self-determined morality, as you make your commitment to Christ. Repentance and commitment are the only building-blocks of life that are justified in God’s eyes. They are found woven into robes of biblical righteousness. The only One who can provide these robes sits on a holy throne. His name is Jesus. Righteousness is surrender to truth, which is the living Word of God, as only He defines it. It is cannot be manufactured or self-determined. The substance of these robes of righteousness is found only in your heart’s surrender to Christ. I’m Dr. Bob. Put on these garments. Wear them gracefully and gratefully. Let there be no manufactured righteousness or self- determined morality in your life. Biblical righteousness, based on surrender to Christ… now, that’s something you can wear. You can listen to my previous Mentoring Minutes at www.mentoringministry.com/blogs.
