A human being lives, but he is given life.
Righteousness by faith is simply looking for Jesus to manifest His Righteous life of victory in our life. God wants us to look to Christ for victory, not to ourselves. This is true righteousness by faith and it is God’s will for every Christian. The most wonderful secret of living a holy life does not lie in imitating Jesus; it is the perfect qualities of Jesus exhibit themselves in my human flesh. Sanctification is “Christ in you…” (Col 1:27). Sanitation means the impartation of the holy qualities of Jesus Christ to me. It is the gift of His patience, love, holiness, faith, purity, and godliness that is exhibited in and through every sanctified soul.
Sanctification is not drawing from Jesus the power to be holy – it is drawing from Jesus the very holiness that was exhibited in Him, and that He now exhibits in me. Do you see the beauty in this truth? Our only part is to look to Jesus with trusting faith and believing that God will manifest His promise and Christ’s righteousness will be in each and every believer that chooses to let this happen.
