God’s names (5)

20 September 2021
‘And this will be his name: “The LORD Is Our Righteousness.”’

The name Jehovah-Tsidkenu: the Lord my righteousness, was given by God to Jeremiah, announcing the coming of Jesus. ‘I will raise up a righteous descendant from King David’s line…And this will be his name: “The Lord Is Our Righteousness”’ (v.5-6 NLT). Before Jesus came, our righteousness was dependent on our own efforts. ‘We will be counted as righteous when we obey all the commands the Lord our God has given us’ (Deuteronomy 6:25 NLT). But when we failed the righteousness test, the ‘Lord our righteousness’ became our solution. Here’s how: ‘Christ had no sin, but God made him become sin so that in Christ we could become right with God’ (2 Corinthians 5:21 NCV). In Jesus we’ve been made righteous before God. If we’re trying to do what’s right just so we can feel right before God, or to generate a supply of good deeds to draw from when we need a bit of credit, we’re doing it for the wrong reasons. We’re supposed to draw what we need from the righteousness deposited into our account by Christ. If we need humility, purity, patience, kindness or love, we shouldn’t look within ourselves. We should draw them by faith from the supply stored up for us in Jesus. Guilty hearts can draw forgiveness, anxious spirits can draw peace, weary souls can draw strength, and confused minds can draw guidance from our inexhaustible supply in Jehovah-Tsidkenu. Just as we receive salvation by faith, we can draw righteousness and everything else we need through faith in what God has done for us and stored up for us in Jesus the Lord our righteousness!

What Now?

Give thanks for Jehovah-Tsidkenu, the Lord our righteousness, and for the gift of salvation.
