If you consider that He is righteous, you also know that everyone who acts in righteousness is begotten by Him. 1 John 2:29
We are all children of God. We were all begotten by Him. He is our Creator. And because He is our Creator, we must follow all of His rules. That's what our Bibles are for. I have just recently started picking up my Bible more and reading it, whether I think I'm going to understand it or not. Because after all, Mother Angelica tells us that we don't have to be brilliant to be faithful. In reading the Bible, I am learning a lot about His rules. I used to be quite confused about how to live, and if I was doing the right thing. Apparently I wasn't doing the right thing because my life seemed to be in a lot of turmoil. Fighting, arguing, irritability....
But now that I have come to terms with my role in this world as a child of God, a wife, and a mother, I am more at peace. He is my Father. My ultimate Father. THE ONE I have to answer to. If I am living a lawless life, a life full of sin, I am making Him sad. If I live a life of righteousness by His definition, then all of Heaven is singing in praise and happinness! Don't we want to make our Father happy? Of course we do! Reading the Bible and following all parts according to Him will bring us closer to Him as His child.
Dear Lord, I pray that I will be able to live a life full of righteousness as you have defined for me.
