His Righteousness

I've been blogging about our righteousness being as filthy rags. I've discovered/realized another dimension for my understanding of righteousness. We know it's not our righteousness that we need but His; the LORD is the One with the righteousness that we seek in His kingdom. His righteousness becomes ours in Christ when we seek it in His kingdom. .Just as His thoughts are not ours but we should be thinking as He has instructed, our ways are not His but we should be living in the Way, our righteousness is not His but can become ours.

"Jesus' gift of righteousness has made you an heir of the world"

After watching Joseph Prince a couple of times this morning, I went on the josephprince.org website. I ordered the Faith-Filled Words offer, subscribed to the Daily Grace Inspirations, read today's and started watching a video. The last sentences of the Daily Grace Inspirations post put me in thought! He quoted Matthew 6:33 but put in bold type "His righteousness." I blogged/quoted the sentences that followed on Inspiraquote:
Beloved, seeking God’s righteousness means that you see Jesus as someone who knew no sin but became sin for you, so that He could give you His righteousness and make you the righteousness of God in Him! As you proclaim daily the truth that you are the righteousness of God in Christ, you will see “all these things” (Matthew 6:33) added to you without even asking for them!

Daily Grace Inspirations, Jesus, The Measure Of Your Righteousness
In the video I was watching on the site, Boast Of The Lord’s Love For You, Not Your Love For Him, there are things I'd like to share. After reading, 1 John 4:16-17, he said,
Never forget, today, God is no more assessing or judging you based on who you are. God is judging and assessing you today, believer, based on the perfect man at His right hand.As He is, so are we in this world. Do not ask, Am I accepted before God? Am I pleasing to God? No, those are wrong questions to ask. Ask, Is Christ accepted before God? Is Christ pleasing to the Father? Can He ever come under condemnation again? As He is, so are we in this world.
He mentioned in the broadcast today, God did not send Jesus to be on His own and we on our own. God looks at Jesus for our acceptance, pleasure, righteousness, holiness.
Therefore, if we look to Jesus, we can rest assured that we have that identity before God.
