Lead A Rigteous Life

"Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray.
He who does what is right is righteous, just as
He is righteous.
He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because
the devil has been sinning from the beginning.
The reason the Son of God appeared was to
destroy the devil's work.
No one who is born of God will continue to sin,
because God's seed remains in him; he cannot
go on sinning, because he has been born of God.
This is how we know who the children of God are
and who the children of the devil are: Anyone
who does not do what is right is not a child of God;
nor is anyone who does not love his brother."

1John 3: 7-10

John admonished us to lead a righteous life befitting our title as children of God. Those who have been born again through the baptism of the Holy Spirit have been imbibed with power and grace from on high and must leave the path of sinful living. The word of God empowers us to be righteous just as our Lord who called us out of darkness is righteous. We cannot go on sinning and still avail of the wondrous gifts of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Sin, anger, strong emotions and contentiousness grieve the Holy Spirit. We must lead simple righteous lives ever waiting for the opportunity to do good deeds to others so that they may glorify our Father in heaven. Let us keep in step with our fellow saints here on earth and the angelic hosts in heaven in worshiping and praising the Lord for all His goodness in our lives. Let us honor God with a righteous life by not sinning.

But nothing gives so much peace and happiness as much as the feeling that we're walking on the way God told us to ..

Hi Priya,
That's because we are all works in progress. We are in the situation God wants us to be, no more no less. And we must learn our lessons well so that we can go higher up the ladder of God's pathway to righteousness where we glorify Him with our righteous acts. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always my young friend.
