“If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone also who practices righteousness is born of Him.” (1 John 2:29)
The righteousness of Christ is what we wear. Unless we take on His righteousness, anything we would call our own are worthless rags unworthy of consideration. It is Christ alone who is the author and finisher of our faith. We do not need to figure it out. We do not need to know all things. We need the righteousness that only Christ can and does provide through His death and resurrection.
Lord Jesus, help me to see that You are my all in all and that apart from You I can do nothing. You are the Savior who has come to save. Lead me in the way of truth that You have established that I may walk in the way in which You lead that I may live the life to which You have called me. Guide me, Savior, in the Word of eternal life that You have spoken and that You live.
Lord Jesus, apart from You, I can do nothing. You have come that as many as would trust in You alone will not be disappointed, but live according to the will of the Father. Help me, I pray to live today and every day in Your never failing promises that I may truly abide in You and Your righteousness and live the will of the Father through my life. Keep me close to You, and help me to keep You close to me. Amen.
