Righteousness still exalts a nation!

Random thoughts…

Righteousness exalts a nation…   Prov 14:34

Abraham believed God & it was credited to him as righteousness.  Whatever that ‘righteousness’ thing was that Abraham received, it wasn’t just something that impacted him personally.  It was way bigger than that.  He was even able to bargain with God on behalf of a wicked city.

The gift of righteousness that has been given to you by Christ, an absolutely free gift, is something way bigger than you.

You are a steward of something that has been given to cities & nations. 

Christ has declared the nations righteous…  (Gal 3:8) Do you have any idea of the enormity of that?  What is more, you have been given responsibility as a steward of this gift.  Christ has given his gift to you.  This gift that is given to you then transforms you into a gift to the nations.

JC is looking for servants who will give the other servants their food at the proper time.  Will you be that servant?  Discern the seasons; pass on what God has made available for that season.

Will you be an ‘Abraham’ for your city.  Will the gift of righteousness on your life be a gift that impacts cities & nations?

[ this is a reblog.  i often wake up with this on my mind… righteousness exalts a nation…  righteousness exalts a nation… ]
