Jesus, The LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS

(Our pastor’s sermons, praise, and prayer for the week.)

Jesus Accused of All Our Crimes.  Luke 23:1-12The Promise of a Righteous King  Jeremiah 23:1-8

Praise God our Father for sending THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS into the world, the righteous King who justifies us by his cleansing blood and imputed obedience, the King who sanctifies us by his Spirit so that we share in the “fruits of righteousness” through union with him (Phil. 1:11).
Praise our Savior for coming into the world as the King of righteousness, and humbling himself to accept the charges against us, stand good for our crimes before the just Judge, and made full satisfaction to obtain our redemption.
Hallelujah, what a Savior! What wondrous love, lively hope, and an immovable anchor within the veil of God’s presence.
Mighty King and loving Savior, help us to serve you today with thankful hearts, love you for your love, devote ourselves to your praise, speak your truth, and expect you to be faithful.
What a privilege to be a Christian! Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift.
