The Righteousness Of Faith Speaks by Joseph Prince
Let me say something about faith. You cannot have faith without speaking it. When you study Romans 10, you will notice that it says that “the righteousness which is of the law...does...But the righteousness of faith speaks.” The law is about doing, whereas faith is about speaking. It is not enough to just know in your mind that you are righteous. You need to open your mouth and say by faith, “I am the righteousness of God in Christ.”
Paul said, “And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, ‘I believed and therefore I spoke,’ we also believe and therefore speak” (2 Corinthians 4:13). The spirit of faith is clearly about believing and speaking. So it does not matter how many sermons or books on righteousness you have heard and read. You need to believe it and speak it.
Confessing your righteousness in Christ keeps you conscious of Jesus. Every time you speak it, you magnify His finished work on the cross. So believe and speak the truth: “I am the righteousness of God in Christ.” The more you believe it and speak it, the more you will walk in the blessings of the righteous!
