Many people ask the questions, is there a right way to live? Is it possible to live without going wrong? or in simple Biblical terms, can I live a sinless life? These are fair questions, questions that need answers.
If there was ever a text that speaks about the purpose of righteousness, it is 2Corinthians 5:21. Read it and Consider the following…
Jesus, knew no sin, and yet was made like us so that we can be like Him. In order to gain understanding, we need to look for answers in the life of Jesus. Jesus lived a sinless life, did no wrong, was tempted as we are, yet without sin. So in other words, I’m obliged to say, “if He could do it for me, surely by His strength (Phil 4:13) I can do it also”.
We are saved by grace through faith (Eph 2:8) and this same Grace teaches us that we can live ‘Righteously’ and Titus 2:11-12 even goes as far as to say we can live ‘Godly’, right now in this present world!
So based on these scriptures, what do YOU think? Are ALL things possible through Christ who gives you strength? Wouldn’t He give you strength to live righteously both inwardly and outwardly? Share your thoughts.
