CHRISTIANITY IS A CALL TO RIGHTEOUSNESS!
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2).
Every Christian had been called unto righteousness in life. Righteousness is the nature of God that made Him unique in life. As soon as you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you automatically receive the righteousness of God in life. In the opening text, the Bible says that do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he had been called by God to live a life of righteousness in life. Living a life of righteousness is indeed a call from God to every Christian in life forever.
The righteousness of God is also a gift which you receive through Christ Jesus in life. That is why the Bible says in Romans 5:17, “For if by the one man’s offence death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.” Therefore, man’s death and condemnation was cancelled by God’s righteousness in Christ Jesus. A Christian receives the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ by divine grace in life. Jesus Christ is indeed the righteousness of God in the life of a Christian forever.
Christianity is a call to righteousness in life. There is no way one can be qualified for a life of righteousness without total and absolute obedience to God’s Word in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in James 1:22, “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.” In fact, the only way for a Christian to constantly maintain the righteousness of God is to humbly be a doer of God’s Word daily in life. When you fail to obey God’s Word, you are a deceiver and there is no way a deceiver can ever receive the righteousness of God in his life. Indeed, the only criterion for constantly maintaining the righteousness of God is based on total obedience to God’s Word in life forever.
Daily Tip: Christianity is a call to righteousness; therefore, do not be conformed to the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind through total and absolute obedience to God’s Word daily. Shalom!
Golden Text: In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother (1 John 3:10).
