Today is Monday March 22 2022, and in the word of God for today on this platform we are going to look at God’s covenant with Abraham.
“For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”1 Peter 3:12.
Our topic for today.
In our scriptural text for the word of God today March 22 2022, we can see that the Lord only listens to the righteous and is against those who practice evil.
That is to say, unless you attain righteousness, you will not be able to receive anything from God.
But the problem we have is that so many people think there is no way a human being can be righteous because of what the scripture says about there not being a righteous man on Earth.
Is there a righteous man on Earth?
The scripture says in that we should not receive ourselves because whoever practices righteousness is righteous, just as Christ is righteous.
And for that reason, becoming righteous lies in your ability to practice righteousness.
How to practice righteousness.
You can practice righteousness if you are able to obey the commandments of God.
The best way to practice righteousness is to do what the scripture says in that we should owe no one nothing except to love one another, because it is love that helps us obey all the other commandments.
For if you love your neighbour you will not steal from him or sleep with his wife or even murder him.
Making love the number one priority in our lives will help us attain righteousness.
Finally, let’s not forget that the main reason we want to become righteous is so he Lord can always answer our prayers.
In the case of Abraham, God established the Jewish race that later metamorphosed to the modern Christianity through him.
