Judgment and Righteousness

We are not accustomed to asking God for judgment because we think He will judge against us. But Jesus has become our propitiation. The price of our sins has been paid. The Father therefore judges that the accuser’s case is wholly without merit.
         God has judged in Jesus and you are righteous in Him. Furthermore, this righteousness manifests itself in rending right judgment towards others, refusing to play the role of accuser. It manifests itself in acting righteously, doing that which is right. This is nothing less than victory in the face of sure defeat, new life after certain death, and great joy after devastating despair.
         Here we are, God is our judge. He is our righteousness. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
