Manna for the Day

ℳαηηα ḟøґ тℌℯ Ðα¥ : Jesus answered and said to them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance." (Luke 5:31-32, NKJV).

Only when we come to realize that we are hopeless sinners heading towards hell fire and are in desperate need of the Savior, can Jesus really come in to our heart to save us from sin and help our sin-sick soul to be healed by the Presence of God. Those who feel that they are righteous by their own religiosity and self-righteousness are some of the worst sinners who are very hard to be saved because of this wrong demonic religious attitude in them. Sinners can easily repent because they realize that they are heading towards hell for their sins, the righteous sees no need of it because they delusively believe that they are heading towards heaven.

Jesus is the only soul physician who can cure the disease of sin, there is no other person to do the job in the whole universe. God made Christ to be sin for us, and then from the moment we accept Christ, he became our righteousness. Christ's righteousness is put in to our heavenly spiritual account and then His righteousness is transmitted to our heart for us to walk in it. Our imputed righteousness never changes but our imparted righteousness needs refilling again and again. Imparted righteousness will work itself out of us to reveal the nature of Christ through our actions. We are saved by the imputed righteousness which never changes for eternity (Rom 4:6), but we are rewarded according to the measure of imparted righteousness with which we walk in this world (Phil 3:8-10). If you even have any ounce of self righteous spirit in you, humble yourself before the Lord now so that He might give you great grace and righteousness to walk as Christ walked on earth and glorify God in the future.

Say this heartfelt prayer to the Lord Jesus, "My own righteousness are like filthy rags before you O God and is of no real spiritual and eternal value. You are my righteousness and I stand as righteous person now because you have taken my sin and as a result God has imputed your perfect righteousness to my spiritual account in heaven and have declared me to be righteous. Now I have become the righteousness of God in you. Give me more of your righteousness moment by moment as I keep in touch with you by faith and help me to walk continually in your righteousness for the praise and Glory of God! Praise the Lord! Thank you Jesus!"
