The Courage to Choose Righteousness

Good morning Ekklesia,


In the journey of faith, we are often faced with choices—choices between what is right and what is easy, between God's will and the temptations of this world. But remember, the path of righteousness is not always the path of least resistance.


Scripture reminds us, "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matthew 7:13-14).


Choosing to do the right thing, even when it's easier to do the wrong thing, requires courage and conviction. It requires us to stand firm in our faith, trusting in God's guidance and His promises.


When faced with temptation, we must remember that we are not alone. The Holy Spirit dwells within us, empowering us to overcome every obstacle and to choose righteousness over sin.


In moments of weakness, it can be tempting to compromise our values and convictions for the sake of convenience or temporary pleasure. But let us not forget the words of Scripture, "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind" (Romans 12:2).


Choosing righteousness may come with challenges and sacrifices, but the rewards far outweigh the temporary pleasures of sin. It brings peace to our souls, favor in the eyes of the Lord, and blessings beyond measure.


So, let us take heart and be encouraged, knowing that our God is faithful. He will never leave us nor forsake us, and He will always provide a way out when we are tempted (1 Corinthians 10:13).


Today, let us choose righteousness over sin, obedience over convenience, and faith over fear. For in doing so, we align our lives with God's perfect will and open the floodgates of His blessings upon us.


Heavenly Father, give us the courage and strength to choose righteousness in every circumstance. Help us to resist temptation and to walk in obedience to Your Word. May our lives be a testament to Your grace and Your glory. In Jesus' name, amen.


Remember, dear friends, the road of righteousness may be narrow, but it leads to eternal life and abundant blessings. May we always choose to walk in the light of God's truth, no matter the cost.


LoveUmorethanUknow, Stephän
