It is a story that begins in innocence, falls into sin, is rescued by the blood of Christ onto righteousness -
-by grace through faith, and ends up in abundant eternal life in Christ.
So now Christ at the right hand of the Father is our righteousness,
He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
What does this mean for us in our daily lives?
If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone also who practices righteousness is born of Him.
Each of those wonders of being in Christ has a CORRESPONDING EXHORTATION to LIVE THAT WAY NOW!
The harvest of your righteousness refers here to the fruit that comes from your acts of giving generously to the needs of the saints.
