Christ is our righteousness; this puts man in a place where he is validated by the Father through Jesus Christ. In saying this, we understand that every time we come before the Father, we no longer are as we naturally are; (sinful and soulish) but we come as though we are Christ. Also, man is the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, so God gets His validation as men see us believers and watch our lives as it unfolds God (2Cor 5:21, NKJV).
In being the righteousness of God, we are to fully represent God on earth. That is to say , in representing God, we do as He does, think as He thinks and above all, do His perfect will (John 5:19, NKJV). But man in his fallen state in hope of complete salvation is so disconnected from God that he has to begin to learn His ways (Isa 55:8-9, NKJV) by the Spirit of God that knoweth the deepest things of God (1Cor 2:10, KJV).
In the knowledge of this, we understand that everything that proceedeth from us is as a burnt offering to God, even so worship (Romans 12:2). We must realize that worship is not the songs we sing as much as it is a constant and consistent posture of our lives towards God.
(2Cor 5:17, NKJV)A believer does not become a new creation the day he becomes born again, he only gets renewed by the Spirit of God. A believer becomes a new creation only when he begins to live his life according to the Will of God.
An average believer’s struggle in salvation is not the issue of heaven or hell but entering into the perfect will of the Father, becoming the full image of the Christ. The quickest and most accurate way of entering into the fullness of the Christ is not by effort or personal works but only by the leading of the Holy Spirit through Grace (Ephesians 2:8-9).
