Here is the question of the application of this righteousness. God has treated sin for its complete elimination, and all this is grace. “The lamb came out of the foundation.” God, the Almighty, in his all-powerful holiness and eternal love, has planned to open the path to salvation. It is a path by which God does correctly to the sinful man with God himself; He justifies it. From the point of view of man, man clings to this salvation offered by faith. The word of faith is beaned, misunderstood, limited, and yet Paul offers no other way but by obtaining God`s free gift through faith. If one can assume that every righteousness that a man has is a gift from God, he is obliged to ask himself the question of how God`s righteousness becomes the righteousness of man and, moreover, he must present what it is that such justice manifests itself in the life of man and perhaps also in his society. Paul, written on justice in the Romans (1.17 s.; 3:20ff.), first says that a righteousness of God was revealed by faith in faith; he continues to say that this righteousness of God is the righteousness of Christ, which has been presented as an atonement for man`s sin, and that the just attainment of Christ`s righteousness depends on faith. So what is the disadvantage? “Blessed are those who are hungry and thirsty for justice, for they will be satisfied” (5:6). This bliss is another: “Blessed are the pure in the heart, for they will see God.” In this insight of Kierkegaard, it is useful when he suggests that “being pure in the heart” is wanting one thing – God`s will. A man`s eye must be “individual” and not “nasty.” Jesus described his own “flesh and drink” as the will of his Father. So when he said that there is satisfaction for those who are “hungry and thirsty for justice,” he did not talk about obtaining or winning, but about the series of life. Satisfaction comes in the constant vision and direction in which a human being moves.
The whole inclination of a human being`s life is described as hunger and thirst; And yet this constancy of hunger and thirst is strangely their own satisfaction. The literature is filled with illustrations of some variations of the search for the Holy Grail. It seems that there is no greater description of a dignified and satisfactory undertaking than that of ongoing research and research. How interesting that the Promised Land for the Israelis was presented to them as a land that “flows with milk and honey.” Honey itself cloys and saturates. Milk clarifies the taste. A promised country is a country where endless joys are constantly reopened to greater pleasures. Hunger and thirst continue, even when you`re full. “The reach of a human being should exceed his grip, or what is the purpose of a sky?” Basically, and in short, the biblical thought OT is completely dominated by its theocratic norm. It is based on the fact that God is essentially an absolute holiness, a fact established by a particular revelation. The demands made to man for his righteous life are therefore never relativistic. The requirements are absolute. One can expect God to be righteous in his action, but what is terrible is that he must be quite righteous by nature.
As He is the center of all reality and existence, everything in His universe is bound to Him in the same absolute demands. The conclusion of this is, as Paul points out in the Romans: “No one is right, no, not one” (Rm 3:10). In the presence of God, “who can stand?” The answer is very clear: no one! There are no rewards for obedience, no demands for recognition, and finally no excuses, for wickedness cannot exist in The Presence of Holiness. Absolute cleanliness has no stains. From God`s point of view, the simple but profound problem is how God can be “just and just,” or, in other words, how His Holiness can be kept untouched while he is busy welcoming a profane man.
