To pursue godly righteousness, acknowledge first and foremost that you already have the gift of righteousness.
An important feature of the righteousness of God that is given to those who are in Christ, is that it is a free gift given by God.
Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people. You can’t reach your ultimate heights in God, if you, as a Christian, live in sin.
To be a part of God’s kingdom, you must love righteousness. If as a Christian, you live a life of sin, you will never enjoy the peace of God.
The throne of Jesus continues to endure, because it is founded on righteousness. Anything you set up that is not built on the foundation of righteousness will collapse.
Sin comes with terrible consequences. Sin hinders the move of God in your life; it prevents God’s move in your environment from affecting you.
Sin attacks your speed, and slows down your rate of success. Sin prevents you from achieving results at the time that they matter.
Sometimes in order to win, you have to get in first. Sin stops you from being first, thereby sabotaging your success. To succeed, root out sin from your life.
To achieve tremendous success, realize that being the first is often more important than being the best. If you want to accelerate your level of personal success, be the first.
Sin has a disabling effect. It cripples you, and consequently, makes you stagnant. Righteousness, on the other hand, exalts a nation. Choose today to walk in righteousness.
Sin causes sicknesses amongst many other problems. As a Christian, you will do well to live a sin-free life. Daily ask God to help you steer clear of sin.
If you are in Christ, you have received God’s gift of righteousness. You can and should live a sin-free life by the enabling of the Holy Spirit through prayer.
During your daily devotion, celebrate the cross and thank Jesus for the wonderful blessings that are yours in His name. Then acknowledge the presence and help of the Holy Spirit in your life.
Like Jesus, never joke with your personal daily devotions. The first thing you should do in the morning is to acknowledge God as God over your life.
Make your daily devotion strong and powerful by having it early in the morning and in a place where you are assured of privacy.
To have a successful personal devotional life, like Jesus, your daily devotion should start very early in the morning.
At this season, God wants you to work on these three key aspects of personal development: a godly character, a strong devotional life, and an established family devotional culture.
Trust in Jesus, and walk in gratitude. Always thank Him daily that he holds and keeps you. You are no longer the architect of your destiny; Jesus now is.
Jesus is able to save to the uttermost those who trust in him. When you trust in Jesus, he takes responsibility for your salvation and deliverance.
Jesus is your salvation from your weaknesses. Focus your attention on the one God has sent and not on your flaws. Only then will you be saved from your weaknesses.
