Living By Faith


Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us. (Titus 3:5)


“Your spirit is recreated in righteousness; it is a gift!” – Mark Hankins


You can be born again and still have a sin-consciousness, constantly having guilt-consciousness. You can constantly be thinking about the past, your failures, and your weaknesses. You can develop a righteousness-consciousness.

When you start acknowledging every good thing that is in you in Christ, however, you develop a consciousness that you have been made righteous. You have been redeemed. You are a new creation. You are triumphant in Christ. Start speaking that; your spirit man will rise up, and you will bring your body under subjection.

Righteousness is a gift that has been imparted to your spirit. Your spirit is re-created in righteousness; it is a gift. You are pleasing to God. You are accepted before God just as if you had never sinned. You are justified or righteous just as if you had never sinned.


Confession: It is not by works of righteousness that I have done, but according to His mercy that has saved me! (Titus 3:5)
