The Benefits Package March 11
Food for Thought: Prov. 11:4
I’ve heard of some very elaborate benefits packages offered by companies for certain high positions that include luxuries beyond my imagination. Then there are the others that may not be as generous, but they are quite practical and beneficial, enough to convince one to take the job.
Few people really recognize the huge benefits package that produces life in us through the righteousness that God instills in us. (Truth be told, everyday brings another delightful—or deeper–discovery of the contents of it.) Righteousness frees from death and anything related to it. It makes straight our path. When we walk in righteousness, we avoid all the pitfalls and detours that sin produces so that we can walk straight with Him. We don’t deal with the confusions and distractions that the unrighteous have to deal with on a daily basis. Righteousness also frees us from a life of bondage brought on by the enemy. In every tribulation, we are freed when we by faith take advantage of what’s available to us. And God gives us, through His righteousness, wisdom with which to live.
If you have not taken God up on this offer to receive His righteousness, there’s no better time than the present. Then spend the rest of your days learning about and applying those benefits. Take the deal!
