He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour. Proverbs 21:21 KJV
Living a holy life because you have been declared righteous is still God’s call and righteous demand. God says, “Be holy even as I Am holy”.
God makes you and me righteous by the shed blood of Jesus, “the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world”. Living a holy righteous life is up to us.
We have been enabled, empowered, and equipped to live victorious over sin! What we do with what we have received is up to us.
Disciplining ourselves and yielding to the Word of God (the Bible) and the Spirit of God, will bring us
life, righteousness, and honour”.
