NCF Sunday Worship
Righteousness is right living before God in the world, and a desire for right relationships between man and God, and man and man. This is important because so many people are hungering after and thirsting after what they think is righteous but is not. Man is always desiring something less than what God's desires. Man likes to substitute his goodness, for God's goodness. Man says he can seek happiness through fame and fortune, sex, and marriage, and still give God some good, because God knows he is trying hard to please Him. Yet, Romans 3:22-24 reminds us all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and no one can be justified by earning it. We can only be justified by faith in Jesus Christ. When we hunger for getting righteousness this way, we will be satisfied.
