Live unto righteousness.
—1 Peter 2:24
Imputed righteousness, as we have seen, is the character and work of Christ justly reckoned to the believer, in virtue of the substitutionary work of the cross. Imparted righteousness is the working out in a believer’s life in present, daily experience all the righteousness of God worked in by the Spirit. This is the implication of phrases like, “doeth righteousness” (Psalm 106:3)—“fruits of righteousness” (Philippians 1:11)—“armour of righteousness” (2 Corinthians 6:7)—“awake to righteousness” (1 Corinthians 15:34). What we are in the heavenliest is translated into holy living here on the earth, as we continually reckon ourselves to be dead to sin and alive to God.
