Theme: LOOK UNTO ME AND BE YE SAVED

Text: “Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.” – 1 John 3:7

Comment: Some people say there are no righteous persons on earth, citingJob 15:14-16. The fact, however, is that there have been and there are still people giving to doing things that are right before God. Such ones are righteous as Apostle John states. But no man in this world of sin, is perfect before God. This is because of inherited sin and the influence of satan the devil. Though, such one may make mistakes, they do not relish in such errors, but make efforts not to do so again. (Proverbs 28:13,14;   Ecclesiastes 7:20)  Thus, there are, by the grace of God, many men, women, boys and girls who are morally upright, humble and willing to do the Lord’s will by His grace.

Abraham, Lot, Noah, Moses, Job, David, Joshua, Zechariah, Sarah, and so on were righteous. Though, they were surrounded by sinful men, they never compromised their faith but were always grieved with the wickedness going on around them. –  2 Peter 2:8

We should pray God to help us to be devout worshippers whom He will hear their prayers by His grace because we honestly and diligently keep His laws. Scripture says: “Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.” – John 9:31
