Daily Inspiration With Rapsody of Realities



And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4:24).

The verse above is rendered beautifully in the Amplified version. It says, “And put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God’s image, [Godlike] in true righteousness and holiness. ” The phrase, “which after God...” means “in the likeness of God.” You’re created to be like God in righteousness and true holiness. And what is righteousness? It’s the expression of the will and nature of the Father.
Therefore, when the Bible says to put on the new nature, which is created in righteousness, it means that you should walk in the light of who you are: give expression to the will and nature of the Father! The power to please Him always, everywhere, and in all things—bearing testimony to His character, and nature by your life, actions, and words—is in your spirit. You’re called to manifest and administer the will, purpose, and character of God. This is true righteousness.
Jesus was the revelation of the Father’s will and nature; thus, the expression of God’s righteousness. Likewise, our righteousness is our expression of the will and nature of the heavenly Father! Hebrews 1:3 tells us that Jesus was the “express” image of the Father. The word “express” means to show, to evince, to manifest, to articulate, and demonstrate. He was the perfect representative, and representation, of the Father. And the Bible says “ He is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17). This righteousness produces in  us, right-standing with the Father, without fear, inferiority or condemnation.
We’ve been gifted with the ability and power to manifest, articulate, and demonstrate the will and nature of the Father everywhere, in every situation. This is our calling; this is what He’s sent us to do! This is our heritage. Glory to God!

Dear Father, I thank you for making me the effulgence of your glory, and one to manifest, articulate, and express your will and nature everywhere, in every situation. I walk in the reality of the life of righteousness, which I have in Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
1 John 4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
1 Peter 2:9 AMP But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.

Mark 3:13-35, Leviticus 13-14
Acts 19:21-29, Psalm 27-28
