Faith and Righteousness

This morning, I did the old flip open your bible and read whatever it lands on...

Psalm 85:11 (New International Version)
11 Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.

This verse simply speaks to me that our role is to be faithful and God can shower us with righteousness. Sometimes we get it twisted backwards and we think that because we live righteously that God will be faithful.

  1. I agree. To me i think people believe they are righteous through their own actions. But only the faith in God can bring His righteousness to us. Because we have faith, we therefor accumulate righteousness. Not the other way around.
