Jehovah Tsidkenu: The Lord Our Righteousness

Jehovah Tsidkenu: The Lord Our Righteousness

“This is his name whereby he shall be called, The Lord our Righteousness”—Jeremiah 23:6.

WE do not have to establish our own righteousness, for that is impossible, we have already sinned and come short of the Glory of God.

Even if we could be completely righteous from now on, we could not undo the sin, which we have already done.

“Jehovah our Righteousness” refers to the Lord Jesus Christ “who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree”. 1 Peter 2:24

The only way we can be “righteous” is if, God declares us righteous on the basis of the finished work of Christ.

This is called Imputed Righteousness, the Righteousness of Christ set down to our account.

We can receive this Righteousness only by Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We cannot buy it,          barter for it,              be worthy of it,              ONLY receive it by Faith.

If we are to be Saved from the punishment of our Sins:

We must be Justified by Faith Alone in the Finished Work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
