Imputing Righteousness to Your Account

SEPTEMBER 30

"…just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works." Romans 4:6

God imputes righteousness to you through His Son. What does "impute" mean? It means "to put on your account." At the moment you believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, God makes you righteous. Romans 4:8 says, "Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin."

A woman was asked one day what it felt like to be saved, and she replied, "It feels as though I am standing in Jesus' shoes and He is standing in mine." A scholar or theologian couldn't have said it any better. "For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him" (2 Corinthians 5:21).

If you're saved, thank God that though you are a sinner, He doesn't impute it to you and though you are not righteous, He does impute that to you!
