God's Children Know How to be Righteous
“Oh that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea” (Isa 48:18, NKJV). God has a plan. It is this: “Rain down, you heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness; let the earth open …and let righteousness spring up together…” (Isa 45:8, NKJV). “…When people do what is right, it shows that they are righteous…” (1 John 3:7, NLT), that they “…walk in righteousness…” (Prov 8:20, NLT), that they have put “…on the breastplate of righteousness” (Eph 6:14), which you cannot treat like undergarments (Eze 33:13). “[So] I warn you—unless your righteousness is better than the righteousness of the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees, you will NEVER enter the Kingdom of Heaven” (Matt 5:20, NLT), for NOTHING unclean… shall come into it…” (Revelation 21:27, NASB). So “...turn from godless living and sinful pleasures… [(Gal 5:19-21) and] live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness and devotion to God” (Titus 2:12, NLT).
