Cascading Righteousness

“But now, independently of the law, the righteousness of God is tangible and brought to light through Jesus, the Anointed One. This is the righteousness that the Scriptures prophesied would come. It is God’s righteousness made visible through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ. And now all who believe in him receive that gift. For there is really no difference between us, Yet through his powerful declaration of acquittal, God freely gives away his righteousness. His gift of love and favour now cascades over us, all because Jesus, the Anointed One, has liberated us from the guilt, punishment, and power of sin!”
“And when the season of tolerance came to an end, there was only one possible way for God to give away his righteousness and still be true to both his justice and his mercy—to offer up his own Son. So now, because we stand on the faithfulness of Jesus, God declares us righteous in his eyes!” Romans 3:21-22, 24, 26 TPT

Your Righteousness, Your Righteousness
Cascading over, in and through us
Your image in us restored through this gift
Of Your Love and Favour, God Magnificent

You saw we were bound and damaged by our sin
Powerless to change without true healing
You gave us Your Law to reveal the mess we’re in
But we thought we could obey it and missed the mark again

So You sent us Your Son, one with us in human flesh
To reveal Your image, alive as one of us
He loved, forgave and taught and healed as Your true Son
But we failed to understand, let Him on a cross be hung

One with us, Jesus died, and sinful mankind died with Him
As He took the punishment for all of mankind’s sin
But Your Love and Righteousness were too powerful for death
So as One, Your Holy Spirit raised us up again to life

Your Righteousness, Your Righteousness
Cascading over, in and through us
Your image in us restored through this gift
Of Your Love and Favour, God Magnificent

Raised to new life with Christ, to reign at Your Right Hand
We have become full Sons of God and His co-Heirs
The faithfulness of Jesus You have gifted to us
So we can be restored by Your Powerful Righteousness

Your Righteousness, Your Righteousness
Cascading over, in and through us
Your image in us restored through this gift
Of Your Love and Favour, God Magnificent

Now as we rest in the faithfulness of Christ
Your Righteousness becomes ours for life
Empowering us to live as true Sons of God
Healed, restored in Your Image, in Your Faithful Word

Your Righteousness, Your Righteousness
Cascading over, in and through us
Your image in us restored through this gift
Of Your Love and Favour, God Magnificent

One thought on “Cascading Righteousness

  1. Beautiful! The Cascading Righteousness reminds myself and Mark of the brilliance we usually see in Belmore Basin around 3.30- 4pm when light shines through the buildings and hits the water as well as the reflected light from the large windows of the restaurant, bouncing back, lines up together and creates a brilliance hard to look at! It mesmerises Mark and I every time we see it.
