1 John 3:7–Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous.
How are we righteous? We are made righteous through Jesus and by following Him. He is righteous and as we do what He would have us do, we will be righteous. We must be careful that we aren’t deceived or led astray thinking that we can be made right with God by any other way. Only Jesus is righteous and only through Him will we be made righteous.
Father, You are holy and righteous. I will not be distracted or led astray, but will focus on You. No one else can do what You’ve promised and I will allow Your righteousness to work through me today.
