Your Gift: The Lord is Our Righteousness

What will we offer to God on the day when we stand before the One unto whom all secrets are known? Will our lives be like a "white elephant gift" that is ornately wrapped only to conceal a useless or frivolous gift? Or will we stand before God with the righteousness required of us? This Sunday we see the gospel foreshadowed in Jeremiah 23:5-6 as we look at a prophecy given some 600 years before the birth of Christ. God promised the coming of the King whose name is "the Lord is our righteousness." The great news of the gospel is that God Himself provides the righteousness He requires of us!
