Practice Righteousness

Description

Practicing righteousness in the earthly life is moving toward the state of being that which one already possesses in Heaven.

How blessed are those who keep justice, who practice righteousness at all times! (Psalm 106:3)

Practice makes perfect. Practicing righteousness is a strange phenomenon. The moment a person receives Jesus Christ as Savior, he or she is justified and declared “perfect.” Yet the practice of righteousness moves one toward perfection. How can you progress toward what you already have? The covenant person lives on two levels—Heaven and earth. In Heaven, to be in Christ is to have already arrived in His perfection. Practicing righteousness in the earthly life is moving toward the state of being that which one already possesses in Heaven.
