… this is His name by which He will be called, "The LORD our righteousness." Jeremiah 23:6
To be righteous is to align with God’s holy character in every facet of one’s being. This is the requirement for being in relationship with God in this world and for gaining entry into Heaven. Awhile back, billionaire Warren Buffet transferred a huge chunk of his wealth to a charity started by billionaire Bill Gates. But in God’s economy, He transfers the immeasurable wealth of His righteousness to your “account” through Jesus Christ. Before Christ, you and I kept coming up short of God’s glory—His holiness. Now the treasure of His holiness is ours.
