The first thing I value this morning is the righteousness that is already mine. Before I’ve done anything of value, the very righteousness of Christ Jesus—God Himself—is mine as mine. My God. I am saved from the fear of unrighteousness, of failure and shortcomings, because of the grace of righteousness already. His accomplishment is mine.

Philippians 3:8 What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.
