I Love the Testimony of God.
"Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart." (Psalm 119)
Hear afresh the Testimony of God's New Covenant:
"But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ UNTO all and UPON all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by His Grace through the Redemption that is in Christ Jesus..." (Romans 3)
Oh! Lord Jesus, what a profound mystery and vital life to speak 'Thy Righteousness!' Oh! That we may feel our need for Thy Righteousness! What does Thy Righteousness look like 'unto and upon' an individual who has by faith shucked off their own righteousness and claimed Thine?
I Love the Testimony of God!
The Chinese for Righteousness is made up of two separate characters: 'me' or, in Chinese, wo3; and 'lamb' or, in Chinese, yang2.
Consider the import of that! Please consider how right this language captured the word for righteousness. Have you considered it yourself? Is all thine own righteousness gone? As a filthy rag? Has Christ's righteousness become yours by faith? Do you follow the lamb withersoever He goeth? Is all thy life now His to do with as He pleaseth?
