Live by Faith

righteous live by faith

Not a fan of that word righteous.  Ick.  Sounds kind of pompous to me.  I like these synonyms better:  good, virtuous, upright, upstanding, decent.  It’s funny how a word can take on different meanings and feelings.

Because it is good to be righteous.  I want to be upright, upstanding, decent.  I want people to look at me and know I live by faith in Jesus–and those are all the things He stands for.  I just want to make sure I live in virtuous humility.

Yeah, virtuous.  Much better word.  And humility–takes out all of that pompous Pharisee-ness.  I want people to look at me and say, “–Wow, she is a HOT MESS.  But at least she has got her faith and is holding tight!”

How about you?

Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.
