The Father Wants Us to Feel Secure
I have met many people who have grown up in dysfunctional homes, and I have met a number of people from healthy homes. The common difference between the two is that the dysfunctional person has significant questions about their worth, while the person who was raised in a healthy home feels secure and loved. God the Father is the perfect Father who wants His children to have a deep sense of security and of being loved. He wants us to base our sense of security on what his Son, Jesus Christ, has done for us. In fact, He wants us to feel as secure as Jesus Christ Himself. That is why Second Corinthians 5:21 says, "He made him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in him."
The simplest explanation of the gift of God's righteousness is this: He treats us as He treats his own Son Jesus. Therefore, He grants to us the righteousness of God. This is not performance-based righteousness, but a free gift of righteousness so that the issue of our acceptability to God the Father is forever answered. We are as acceptable to God as a member of the Trinity itself. That is utterly astonishing. It is beyond our imagination and hard to grapple with. But the more we grapple with this truth, the greater our Christian confidence will be. God the Father wants his children to have a deep sense of security and a profound sense of serenity.
