Right­eous­ness

The Global Digest (English) - - FRONT PAGE -

Right­eous­ness is one of the most im­por­tant things in Chris­tian life. Chris­tians be­lieve we can have free­dom or eter­nal life for­ever, only through right­eous­ness. Right­eous­ness is moral­ity and ho­li­ness as rep­re­sen­ta­tion of God’s char­ac­ter.

And “to right­eous­ness (Rom. 6:18), can be called free­dom, and the good of men (I Cor. 9:1-23, 10:23-33).”24 Fur­ther, “the be­liever’s free­dom in Christ does not re­sult in sin but is­sues in good works (1 Pet. 2:15, 16).”25

Right­eous­ness is “to pur­sue right­eous­ness of life in full sub­mis­sion of life to the will of God. Right­eous­ness will lead to per­se­cu­tion by some (Matt 5:10), but they will be­come dis­ci­ples and praise the Fa­ther in heaven (Matt 5:16).”26 “Right­eous­ness is truly the will of God, the teach­ing of Je­sus.”27 The Free­dom re­flects the right­eous­ness (Rom 6:18).

In free­dom land, “the right­eous will in­herit the land and dwell in it for­ever” Ps 37:29. A right­eous man whom God see per­fect, Job said, “right­eous­ness as my cloth­ing; jus­tice was my robe and my tur­ban” (Job 29:14). Also Peter said, “a new heaven and a new earth, the home of right­eous­ness” (2 Pet 3:13).
