Msg#1625 A Fathers Righteousness

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

I pray that no father who reads this has to go through the trials that Job went through, but that every father secures the righteousness that Job confidently held to. “Till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me. My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go” (Job 27:5-6). In Job's extensive argument he requested a God-man Daysman (9:33), he knew that his Saviour must be God himself (13:15-16), he knew that that Redeemer “liveth and shall stand at the latter day upon the earth,” and that his resurrected body would see him for himself (19:25-27). The theme of Romans 4 is how any father can secure Job's confidences by attaining God's righteousness for himself. “For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness” (4:3), and again, “Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin” (4:6-8). Paul develops that this righteousness is not attained by works, nor circumcision, nor law. “(Abraham) staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith... and therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness” (4:20,22). He goes on, “Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; Who was delivered for our offenses, and was raised again for our justification” (4:23-25). At conversion God's righteousness is quickened into the believer, it is as permanent as everlasting life. Happy Father's Day.
