Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah. In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of Righteousness to grow up unto David; and He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness. (Jeremiah 33:14-16)
For GOD sent His Son to be the sacrifice for the sIn of the world. And those of us who have received Him and are born again, have a new life of discipleship that is everlasting and a new righteousness in Christ that is eternal. Each of us had to see ourselves as GOD saw us, and repent, that is turn away from our sIn, and to GOD. GOD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all, but we had to receive that free gift for ourselves once we came to understand it and believe.
If you don't yet know GOD, He loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. He is not willing that you should perish, but wants you to come to the knowledge of the truth. The truth as described in this passage, that He is GOD, that He is our only righteousness, and without Him we are men most miserable. Believe His Word, and receive Him today.
Live in the righteousness that comes from our Lord,
