How many people do think they know too much about everything that they refuse to learn?
1Cor 1: 30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became wisdom to us from God: both righteousness and sanctification and redemption,
Phil 3:9 And be found in Him, not having my own righteousness which is out of the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is out of God and based on faith.
Should it matter how many times you've flown on a plane; you must always listen to flight ✈️ instructions.
When we enjoy Christ, the first aspect of the divine virtue, the divine goodness, we shall experience is God as our righteousness. Whenever we enjoy Christ and experience Him, we first have God as our righteousness. And always.
This means that when we exercise our spirit and call on the name of the Lord Jesus, we become righteous. The more we call, the more righteous we become.
Let us again refer to an illustration from married life. It certainly is wrong for a husband to come home late at night. Nevertheless, a wife may be wrong and unrighteous in the way she deals with her husband concerning this matter. Or visa versa. They may be altogether unfair, condemning each other and putting all the blames on each other.
Each other should never condemns the other or without blaming themselves. Indeed such attitude is also wrong, and that is unrighteous whilst we unnecessary arguing with each other.
Whenever a husband and wife exchange words, both parties are unrighteous. The husband will declare that he is right and that his wife is completely wrong. The wife will insist that the husband is wholly wrong and that only she is right. As a result, both the husband and the wife become unrighteous.
Should the wife begin to exercise her spirit and call on the name of the Lord Jesus, she will realise that she has been unfair and unrighteous in relation to her husband. Then she will say to herself, "Yes, my husband is wrong to a certain extent. But I put too much blame upon him.
Furthermore, I am also wrong to argue with him and to condemn him." Similarly if the husband does the same. Such responsibility is double edged.
However; when the both of them realises their situations by calling on the name of the Lord, they both or the one who realises such error spontaneously becomes righteous, for Christ becomes righteousness to her/him.
Whenever we become righteous by calling on the Lord, we become calm. Righteousness calms us down. The reason a husband and wife argue and exchange words is that neither party is righteous. But if one party becomes righteous, this righteousness will cause the other party to calm down.
Suppose it is the wife who turns to the Lord, calls on Him, and becomes righteous in dealing with her husband. Immediately he will realize that she has changed and that she is now fair and righteous in relation to him.
