Hebrews 1 vs
9》》”Heb 1:9]] WEB* You have loved righteousness and hated iniquity; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.”~》》KJV》
ONE lifestyle of Christ that makes Him the standard for living is that He loved righteousness and hated iniquity. He didn’t love both. Yes, as a Christian you cannot love both righteousness and ungodliness. When you became born again, you made a choice to live like Christ in all godliness. In other words, when you become born again, that ability to love sinning or ungodliness gradually dies in you. The seed of God in you births a glorious desire in you for right living (1 John 3:9).
Your spirit bears witness with God’s Spirit that you are the son of God (Romans 8:16). So God’s Spirit, the perfect guide and teacher will lead you to put you on the track of righteousness. One hallmark that shows a Christian has a living conscience is that he knows when he has messed up and makes restitution by the blood of the Lamb. Whoever loves righteousness understands and walks by the principles or ways of righteousness. To love righteousness means more than confessing it; Rather, it means living right according to the standards of God’s word by faith through His grace.
As a child of God, you stand by faith; therefore your works of righteousness should be the one which is of faith in Christ Jesus. And faith also produces good works. The righteousness which is of faith in Christ helps you to live right (Romans 2:17;3;22). For it takes the seed of righteousness to bring the fruit of righteousness. To love righteousness also means having a strong affection and desire for it; it also means to welcome, entertain, be fond of it. Talk about it; love it, think it and practise it. A choice to love righteousness is a choice to denounce the deeds of ungodliness. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Father of All Righteousness, I celebrate Your Holiness and praise Your Precious Name. I thank You for given me the gift and nature of righteousness to help me love righteousness. By the supply of this nature in me, I graciously choose to love and act righteously according to the power of the Holy Spirit who strengthens in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen !_
