A very simple answer to this question is — Jesus revealed the righteousness of God through OBEDIENCE!
Obedience through Water Baptism
Water Baptism is an outward sign of Salvation and it is the will of God for us to fulfill His righteousness. When we obey God in this regard, we are delivered from the nature of sin. Jesus, after He was come of age, also fulfilled this aspect of God’s righteousness by being water baptized at the hands of John the Baptist. And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. Matthew 3:15
Obedience through suffering
Though Jesus was the Son of God, He went through a life of suffering when He came on earth. Jesus didn’t have it easy here on earth; nevertheless knowing this He did come down for us. He regularly offered prayers, when not preaching, because He had to fulfill the plan of God concerning His life — to be the ultimate sacrifice for mankind. Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; Hebrews 5:7-8
Obedience through doing God’s Will
This is one area, children of God find it very difficult to follow. I say this with me included in it as well. Most of us know what our Heavenly Father likes and dislikes. He has made it pretty easy for us by handing over His Word to us. However, Jesus was very particular in obeying and fulfilling His Father’s will right from His childhood. Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. John 4:34. Jesus loved His Father dearly, He knew His Father was always with Him, so He was willing to do His Father’s will.
OBEDIENCE IS POSSIBLE ONLY OUT OF LOVE.
Dear brother/sister, when you love God, obeying God will also come easy to you. Take out time to read and explore the Word of God. You will be amazed to see how God speaks to you through His Word. There is a big blessing in obeying. Obedience is better than sacrifice. May God help us!
Be blessed 💕
