Psa 1:1-6 The blessed man is righteous. (1) Blessed man is holy completely, utterly righteous - never violated the law of God. (2) Jesus Christ is the Blessed Man. (3) Jesus made it clear that blessing comes by trusting and following Him. Blessing comes through Him - no effort nor merit (Mat 5:3-12). If Jesus alone is the Blessed man - why? (a) The first man declared righteousness is Noah (Gen 7:1, Rom 6:23, Eph 2:8-9, Gen 15:6). Noah "found Grace" by faith and attain righteousness (Heb 11:6). (b) no natural man is righteous in himself (Rom 3:10, Psa 14:1-3, Isa 53:6). (c) all human righteousness the Bible declares as unrighteous (Isa 64:6). (d) How many sins does it take to be unrighteous? One (Rom 5:12, Jam 2:10-11). (e) The only way to righteousness is faith in Christ. (Rom 1:16-17, Rom 3:21-22, Rom 4:3-5, Rom 4:23). Every man is potentially saved via Christ on the cross (2Co 5:19, 1Jo 5:12, Joh 1:12). (4) We enter this blessedness when we believe in Christ. In union with Christ is all blessing (Eph 1:3). (5) Righteousness imputed gives us inner peace and blessing (Rom 5:1). (6) Jesus is called "...righteous branch of David..." (Jer 23:5). (7) For Jesus to impart righteousness to us, He had to pay the price. Eternity for us was so valuable that the cost was the blood of Jesus Christ (Jam 5:6).
