Christians are righteous people,and righteous people are christians; To be righteous is to be in right standing with God;Therefore,Christians obey God’s word ,but acting christians compromise and disobey Gods’ word.Unfortunately many people in the world can’t differentiate between the two.But allow me to shed some light on certain facts: There is a big difference between a righteous person and an unrighteous person,the righteous person lives for God,obey His commands,pray ,go to church and read their Bible daily,and above all accept Gods personal gift of His only begotten son Jesus Christ,who is the only one that allows us to be in right standing with God,and God loves the righteous.
To maintain righteousness, one must present their bodies as a living sacrifice ,Holy and acceptable unto God which is our reasonable service;and be not conformed to this world,but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,that ye may prove what is that good,and acceptable,and perfect will of God (Romans 12:1-2).”What ? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you,which ye have of God,and ye are not your own ? For ye are bought with a price , therefore glorify God in your body,and in your spirit,which are God’s” ( 1 Corinthians 6: 19-20).God loves the righteous Psalms 11 :7 tells us,”For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness;His countenance doth behold the upright” Most people can’t figure out why righteous folks are prosperous,and joyful even when things don’t look good,it’s because we know the God we serve,we trust the God we serve,and we believe in the God we serve,and He reminds us of that fact in Psalms 34:15,17,19.
The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous,and His ears are open unto their cry. The righteous cry,and the Lord heareth,and delivered them out of all their troubles.Many are the afflictions of the righteous;but the Lord delivered him out of them all. Righteous folks are blessed people in Matthew 5:6,10 it tells us, “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness,for they shall be filled.Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake:For theirs is the kingdom of Heaven”.If you are still not satisfied King David says,”I have been young,and now old;yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken,nor his seed begging bread”Psalms 37:25. Then if we move down to James 5: 16 we see that ,” ..The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availed much”.There are many scriptures that prove that God loves the righteous,and His wish is for all to be righteous,that’s why He sent His only begotten son (JESUS CHRIST) .
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son,that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish ,but have everlasting life…( John 3:16-17). For He hath made Him to be sin for us,who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him (2 Corinthians 5:21).For God to answer or hear you when you pray,you must follow what 1 John 1 : 9 says,”If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” God promises in Hebrew 8 :12 that,He will be merciful to their unrighteousness,and their sins ,and iniquities He will remember no more;it is then you will feel His eyes over you ,because of righteousness and His ears will be open to your prayers( 1 Peter 3 :12).Why anyone would not desire the love of God by being righteous does not make any sence,because you will be heading to hell.
God does not dwell in unrighteousness you can’t go to the club, bar, pub, and any other ungodly place the night before and go to church and pretend like you are righteous, because you can’t serve two masters (Matthew 6:24), then by doing that you give the righteous and authentic Christian a bad reputation. One thing you need to know is that if Jesus appears suddenly and you are caught in an ungodly, unholy or un-righteous position ,then you will be left behind. It’s time to be right and if you are not take this opportunity and go to the top of this blog to the Steps to Leading Someone to Christ/Salvation Prayer page and pray the prayer or pray from your own heart. May God guide you in the rest of the steps you have to take with Him in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy. To the only wise God, Our Savior, be glory, honor, praise, and thanks for using me His humble servant to relay this message to His children. To Him be dominion and power, both now and forever, in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
