For the LORD is righteous; he loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold his face. —Psalm 11:7

             There is not one wrong thing that can be found in our Lord. He is perfectly right and there is no flaw in Him.   He only does and loves righteous deeds and hates wickedness — “The LORD tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence” (Psalm 11:5). Those doing wicked and violent things are not in His favor and they will answer to Him. Nobody gets away with anything.

            Those who know Him are made right, not because of what they do but because of their relationship with Him. He makes those who call on Him right before Him—-

But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. —Titus 3:4-7

            To be upright is to be made upright by Him. To be able to do righteous deeds is only because of being made righteous by Him and desiring to serve Him rightly. It is not by what we do that saves us, but whose we are (Ephesians 2:10).   So the question is— Whose are you and is this evident by the way you are living? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uzyth8ghIkw

Dear Father may I live faithfully for You for the rest of my life and do those things that are pleasing in Your sight. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son, Jesus. So be it!
