THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Righteousness is a simple matter.
It is yearning for the Word of God,
learning from the Word of God,
and, determining to live by the principles we learn there.
For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness;
his countenance doth behold the upright.
The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD:
but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.
Light from the Word.
Righteousness is found only in those who have chosen to follow Christ.
It is a manner of exhibiting our love for Him.
Righteousness is not a matter of growing in morality.
It is a matter of choosing to love God, and to follow His Word daily.
It is a matter of loving Christ, and doing His will.
The Bible says, "And that ye put on the new man, which after God
is created in righteousness and true holiness." (Eph 4:24)
For those who choose to love God and follow His Word, the Bible says God
"loveth righteousness;" and "His countenance doth BEHOLD" them.
(Ps 11:7 above)
Also, For those who choose to love God and follow His Word, the Bible says,
God "loveth him." (Prov 15:9 above)
In other words, God LOVES and WATCHES OVER those who surrender to
Christ and choose to live according to His will in their lives.
I both want and need that in my life!
