Practical Living: Righteous Living
The righteousness we have been provided through the ministry of Jesus Christ ensures our eternal life. In this teaching, we’ll look at how righteousness helps us spiritually and what it means for our daily life. By the way, being righteous basically means you are right before God; there is no conflict or division between you and God, no disagreement.
