…be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith…Philippians 3:9
Be Found in Him
Be found in Him. In the Lord! Only true life, abundant life, can be found in Him. In Him we find our standard for living, our moral compass, our ability to discern right from wrong. If we live according to ourselves and our own standards, we will fall short every time. We will disappoint others and will walk the thin line between right and wrong. This is how society lives. They live according to their own standards and moral compass, which means it is always changing. That is impossible to keep up with!
A righteousness found in God is a righteousness based on faith, not opinions. Live according to the Word of God and you will find peace, joy, grace, and love. Live according to the world and you will find heartache, loneliness, and destruction.
A Prayer to Remember
May I be found in you! May I live in your love, your grace, and your righteousness and not my own. You, Oh God, are a great king and I desire to live a life with you. Amen.
