Are you living uprightly? Are your ways pleasing to God? Can you confidently say that God is happy with your life? Or are you struggling with any sin?

One thing you must know is that God is righteous. He is holy in all His ways. He loves you and created you in His image and likeness. He wants you to be like Him in all things.

As God is holy, He wants you to be holy. As He is righteous, He wants you to live in righteousness, showcasing His goodness and character to other people.

What is Righteousness?

Righteousness is the quality of being morally upright, without sin. For those who believe in Jesus Christ, righteousness means being put right with God. It is a gift God gives His children which empowers them to do good works always.

Is it a Must that I should live a life of Righteousness?

Yes. In fact, it is the only way God wants you to live. This is so because God who made you is righteous and wants all His people to live righteously. God does not tolerate sin!

Moreover, living a life of righteousness has a lot of advantages. These include the following:

1) It enables you to please God who made you: Your reason for being alive today is to do those things which will bring joy and pleasure to God (Hebrew 11:5)

2) God hears you when you pray and takes care of you: God does not forsake His righteous people. (Psalm 37:25)

7) You enjoy eternal life in the kingdom of God: The righteous shall shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of God (Matthew 13:43)

How Can I Live A Righteous Life?

It is only God that will enable you to live uprightly. So, you need to return to God. You must believe in Jesus Christ, who will destroy the power of sin in you, and give you the gift of righteousness. You cannot live righteously by your own power.

You must give your life completely to God. You must cease to do evil for sin will destroy your life. Do only good works. Make friends with righteous people.
