Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them,
For they shall eat the fruit of their doings. (Isaiah 3:10 NKJV)
Do what is morally right whatever the cost may be. If we are persecuted because of our righteous deed, so be it. We should rejoice that we suffer with Christ. It is a pity if we suffer because of our unrighteousness. The one who commits sin deserves to be punished, but the good news is that we were forgiven of our many sins. Christ died instead of us to redeem and free us from the penalty of our sins. We are a new creation and as such, we are to walk in righteousness. When we walk in righteousness, peace and mercy will be upon us. We enjoy the benefits of the Christian life. We enjoy freedom. We are free from the bondage of sins. We live not in sin but in holiness. We have a clear conscience. We know that we are already clean and holy as our Father God is. We are partakers of His divine holiness. We walk in the spirit of victory. We are overcomers in this world, just as Christ overcame the world. We cannot be downtrodden, beaten, or defeated by anything in this world. We are confident that God is with us even in the hour of our death. This moment is so important for He will lead us to our rest as we walk in the valley of death. Moreover, we shall rise again just as He rose from the dead, to receive eternal life and the reward of heaven. Truly, we shall not be put to shame for we have this faith in Him.
