Liberating Righteousness

“I refuse to be ashamed of the wonderful message of God’s liberating power unleashed in us through Christ! For I am thrilled to preach that everyone who believes is saved—the Jew first, and then people everywhere! This gospel unveils a continual revelation of God’s righteousness—a perfect righteousness given to us when we believe. And it moves us from receiving life through faith, to the power of living by faith. This is what the Scripture means when it says: “We are right with God through life-giving faith!””
Romans 1:16-17 TPT

The power of Your Righteousness living in me
From sin and works God you have set me free
To be Your beloved child as I was meant to be
Righteous, as Your Image You recreate in me

Once I was a slave to sin
Though I knew it was wrong I so often gave in
I did not have the power to be
A child of God, in righteousness freed

But then You gave Your Son for me
To die my death, bring me to liberty
Raised to live in His resurrection life
I live through Your indwelling righteousness

The power of Your Righteousness living in me
From sin and works God you have set me free
To be Your beloved child as I was meant to be
Righteous, as Your Image You recreate in me

Once I believed that what I did
Would earn my place with You if I was good
Good works became my life and obsession
Till I burnt out from carrying that heavy burden

But then You gave Your Son for me
To die my death, bring me to liberty
Raised to live in His resurrection life
I live through Your indwelling righteousness

The power of Your Righteousness living in me
From sin and works God you have set me free
To be Your beloved child as I was meant to be
Righteous, as Your Image You recreate in me

Now I daily rejoice in Your righteousness
Empowering me to make better choices
I can rest in knowing if I still make mistakes
The power of Your righteousness will all else erase

The power of Your Righteousness living in me
From sin and works God you have set me free
To be Your beloved child as I was meant to be
Righteous, as Your Image You recreate in me

Your righteousness is now my strength and joy
Enabling me Your real Presence to enjoy
We can laugh and talk and chat as One
Because You’ve made me Yours through the life of Your Son

The power of Your Righteousness living in me
From sin and works God you have set me free
To be Your beloved child as I was meant to be
Righteous, as Your Image You recreate in me

Now as the life of Your Son lives in me
I can relax as part of Your Family
I can enjoy all that Sonship entails
What’s Yours is now mine through Jesus Christ

The power of Your Righteousness living in me
From sin and works God you have set me free
To be Your beloved child as I was meant to be
Righteous, as Your Image You recreate in me
