Jesus is Righteous
righteous: virtuous, upright, principled, good, right standing
The only virtuous person, Jesus, whom in love and obedience, came to be the perfect sacrifice of atonement- for all humanity, born out of fellowship and spiritually dead, due to the fall of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. Jesus astounded many in his young life, and provoked the religious of the day with his teachings. He lived simply, gave of himself wherever He went, and in simpleness of speech spoke the redeeming message of the Gospel...John 1:29 The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! Jeremiah33:16 in those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will dwell in safety; and this is the name by which she will be called: the Lord of our righteousness.”
So much was, is, and continues to be “the righteousness[rightness] of Jesus, Messiah, Savior, Lord!... with no spot or blemish, birthed of a virgin, destined to die, loved and hated...He faced his numbered days stilled and affixed on the purposed goal of redemption. Let us continue, Brethren, to keep simply our walk-thoughts-efforts-likes UPRIGHT; for He (Jesus), thou burdened, daily pursued the hope of glory with a walk provoking rightness, and whom we emulate to example.
