God Our Righteousness

“Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord,
“That I will raise to David a Branch of righteousness;
A King shall reign and prosper,
And execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.
In His days Judah will be saved,
And Israel will dwell safely;
Now this is His name by which He will be called:


And again:

In those days Judah will be saved,
And Jerusalem will dwell safely.
And this is the name by which she will be called:


Jehovah-tsidkenu means the Lord our righteousness.

We have no righteousness of our own (see Romans 3:10, Isaiah 64:6).

God had provided our righteousness in the person of Jesus Christ:

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. (Romans 10:4)

We need to accept His righteousness into our lives and then live it out!


Holy Father God, thank You for being our righteousness. Thank You for delivering us from eternity without You. We are grateful to You, Lord Jesus, as our righteousness. We praise and bless You. In Jesus name, Amen.
