Are you born again? Practicing righteousness

DevotionsAre you born again? Practicing righteousness

This is a continuation of the devotion posted on the 20th of October 2018 (Are you born again? Believing in Christ)

We discuss “practicing righteousness” as the third attribute that must be seen in a born again.

Practicing righteousness

 

John wrote: “Every one that doeth righteousness is born of Him” (I John 2:29).

The man who is born again, or regenerated, is a holy man. He endeavors to live according to God’s will, to do the things that please God and to avoid the things that God hates. He wishes to continually look to Christ as his example as well as his Savior and to prove himself to be Christ’s friend by doing whatever He commands. He knows he is not perfect. He is painfully aware of his indwelling corruption. He finds an evil principle within himself that is constantly warring against grace and trying to draw him away from God. But he does not consent to it, though he cannot prevent its presence.

Though he may sometimes feel so low that he questions whether or not he is a Christian at all, he will be able to say with John Newton, “I am not what I ought to be, I am not what I want to be, I am not what I hope to be in another world; but still I am not what I once used to be, and by the grace of God I am what I am.” What would the apostle say about you? Are you born again?

 

Prayer: Lord, help me stay in your righteousness each day. Amen
