  Study Tools

GOD LOVES THE RIGHTEOUS

INTRODUCTION: THE NATION, ISRAEL, BELIEVED LIFE RELATED TO THEIR COVENANT GOD, JEHOVAH. MANY OF THE PSALMS EXPRESS THIS REALITY WITH DEEP SEATED EMOTIONS. DAVID EXPRESSED THESE EMOTIONS IN PSALM 146 WHEN SENNACHERID, KING OF ASSYRIA ATTEMPTED AN UNSUCCESSFUL SIEGE ON JERUSALEM (701 BC).

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT: READ PSALMS 146:8

THE WORD JUST CAN WE BE INTERCHANGED WITH THE WORD RIGHTEOUS. RIGHTEOUSNESS IMPLIES CONFORMITY TO A STANDARD. GOD THE FATHER IS RIGHTEOUS (JUST) AS IS HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST. 2 CORINTHIANS 5: 21 (NASB) 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 HOLY SPIRIT GIVES THE GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. ROMANS 5: 17 (NASB) FOR IF BY THE TRANSGRESSION OF THE ONE, DEATH REIGNED THROUGH THE ONE, MUCH MORE THOSE WHO RECEIVE THE ABUNDANCE OF GRACE AND OF THE GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL REIGN IN LIFE THROUGH THE ONE, JESUS CHRIST.

GOD LOVES ISRAEL (DEUTERONOMY 4:37). HE LOVES THE LOST WORLD (JOHN 3:16) HE LOVES HIS CHURCH (EPHESIANS 5:25). HIS GREATEST PROOF OF LOVE IS THE CROSS (ROMANS 5:8)

APPLICATION: BELIEVING SINNERS ARE DECLARED RIGHTEOUS (JUST) BY THE HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN THEM AND WILL BE RIGHTEOUS (JUST) IN THE AGE TO COME.
