Every time you’re blessed, remember one thing. You are blessed because of Jesus.
God’s blessings are promised and placed “on the head of the righteous.” [Proverbs 10:6]
But even your good deeds cannot meet God’s standard of righteousness, because “all our righteous acts are like filthy rags.” [Isaiah 64:6]
So what hope is there?
There’s nothing in this world that can meet God’s perfect standards.
But God made a way, and that way is Jesus!
“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” [2 Corinthians 5:21]
Because of you, Jesus became sin.
Because of Jesus, you become righteous.
Dear friend, the next time you recognise God’s blessing, say “Thank You Jesus!”
You are blessed because you are righteous, and you are righteous because of Jesus!
