“Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” Romans 10:1-4 (KJV)
Ignorance is not a pleasant word to hear for anyone. Nevertheless, ignorance is no excuse for the sin of God’s people called Christian. There is far too much ignorance concerning the Righteousness of God, and what is required of God’s people.
As Christians we are clothed in the righteousness of Christ; and that righteousness comes out for all the world to see. It is not righteousness to overlook sin. Righteousness deals with sin; starting with our own, then confronting unrighteousness where we see it.
Do not be ignorant of the righteousness of God.
-Tim A. Blankenship
