Righteousness is one of the attributes of GOD as portrayed in the Hebrew Bible. The main meaning of righteousness is the ethical conduct.
I Tim. 6:11 “But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness”
Proverbs 21:21 “Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life, righteousness, and honor.”
Matthew 6:33 “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”
Isaiah 51:1 “Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the Lord: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.”
Ephesians 6:10-14 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of GOD, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;”
Will you start right now and start being righteous according to GOD. He has promised you your happiness, your peace, your joy. Just let him. Righteousness comes to all that believes and have faith in Jesus.
Ask GOD to show you how to be righteous in every area of your life.
Read, pray, and meditate on the word daily and let GOD guide you at all times. Don’t give up if it becomes overwhelming just keep pressing forward as he has you.
