Sometimes we get confused with the terms righteousness and self-righteousness. So, what do righteousness and self-righteousness mean?
What is Righteousness?
Righteousness means doing the right things at the right time based on the standard of God.
The truth is that it is not easy to do the right things at the right time.
It is those that have gotten to a state of perfection that can continually do the right things at the right time.
That is why as Christian, we can only live righteous with the help of God through the Holy Spirit.
There is no way you can do the right things according to God’s standards if you do not know the will of God.
