“Made of God unto You Righteousness”

1Corinthians 1:30


Both in redemption and in regeneration Christ is made of God, unto every believing sinner, righteousness. He is the believer’s only righteousness (Jeremiah 23:6; 33:16).

Christ’s obedience unto death is the righteousness of God imputed to God’s elect in free justification (Romans 3:24; 5:19).

Christ, who is our Righteousness, is formed in (imparted to) redeemed sinners in the new birth. He could not be formed in us except he be imparted to us. Thus, in the new birth, God the Holy Spirit makes regenerate sinners new creatures, partakers of the divine nature and possessors of that holiness without which no man shall see the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:17; Colossians 1:27; Hebrews 12:14; 2 Peter 1:4).

Christ is that new man created in (imparted to) every saved sinner. He could not be created in us except he be imparted to us. He is that new man created in us in righteousness and true holiness, that new man that is born of God and cannot sin, making every heaven born soul in this world one who possesses two distinct, warring natures: the one flesh the other spirit (Romans 7:14-23; Galatians 5:17-23; Ephesians 4:24; 1 John 3:5).
