A Study on Righteousness

God says to look to Abraham and to Sarah https://biblehub.com/isaiah/51-2.htm
Because Abraham believe the Lord He credited it to him as righteousness https://biblehub.com/genesis/15-6.htm  Jesus said the work of God is this to believe in the one whom he has sent https://biblehub.com/john/6-29.htm . Isaiah pinpoints unrighteousness to the thought area  https://biblehub.com/isaiah/55-7.htm
Jesus said to preach, 'repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand'  https://biblehub.com/matthew/4-17.htm
The Greek word for repent has this as a definition, 'To changes one’s mind or purpose' https://biblehub.com/greek/3340.htm
Jesus said seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, https://biblehub.com/matthew/6-33.htm
The righteous will shine as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father.
His face Shone like the Sun https://biblehub.com/matthew/17-2.htm
The default appearance of righteousness is it shines like the sun. Though this is the righteousness of God, this is what has been given to us. When our thinking and believing are in line with God's thinking and believing we are the light of the world.  https://biblehub.com/matthew/5-14.htm
'Just as He is, also are we in this world.' https://biblehub.com/1_john/4-17.htm
'For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.' https://biblehub.com/proverbs/23-7.htm when your thinking is correct the behavior can be corrected without the fear of going backwards.
All that receive and believe that Jesus died on their behalf have been given the free gift of righteousness. Righteousness is the place of being in right standing with God it is the full expression of the sonship we have been given as a free gift, (there is no male or female in Christ). Righteousness has no separation in itself from God, it gives us and makes us full inheritors of His promises. The righteousness consciousness has no fear it has an innocence consciousness. It is passed from judgment to life.
In Deuteronomy God says, 'The LORD your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants, so that you may love him with all your heart and with all your soul, and live.' and also 'Circumcise your hearts, therefore, and do not be stiff-necked any longer.'
There is a partnership here of the circumcision of our heart and soul we must do our part and God will do His. This circumcision when fully accomplished will manifest the Glory that righteousness exists in.
Ignorance will keep one in a stiff-necked place.
The righteous will live by faith, the meaning of this is faith will quicken to life. We need to live by faith all the time or we drift out of this life. It does come by practice.
For the kingdom of God is of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit,
God considers the one that lives by faith as righteous.
