Psalm 37:16-37 – THE BENEFITS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
Those who have trusted Jesus Christ as Savior have been justified. To be justified means to be “declared righteous.” Our righteousness is not based on our goodness, but on the work of Christ in our behalf. Romans 5:1, 2 Corinthians 5:21
After being saved, we, as Christians, are to live righteous, Godly lives. 1 Peter 1:15-16, Romans 12:1-2, Luke 9:23. We are to act like the children of God! Sometimes Christians may wonder what the benefits are for living a righteous life. This passage gives us three benefits.
