God is Righteous
Because GOD is righteous... I will live by His standards.
"The Lord is righteous in everything he does; he is filled with kindness." Psalm 145:17 Discover God Study Bible (NLT)
We live in an age where the distinction between right and wrong is becoming increasingly blurred. Our culture has adopted the principle of situational ethics, which proposes that what is morally right varies from person to person and situation to situation. Yet God's standards do not change; they are timeless.
God's laws are a reflection of His own righteous nature. Only by receiving Jesus as our Savior and Lord are we made righteous, because we cannot keep God's perfect standard on our own.
However, God wants you to display His righteousness in your new life, but this is possible only as you consistently submit your will to the Holy Spirit and depend on Him to empower you.
As Christians, we must hold fast to the righteous standards set forth by the sovereign Ruler of the universe. God will hold every person accountable. Whose standards of right are you following?
"Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith. He was even called the friend of God." James 2;23 Discover God Study Bible (NLT)
