Hunger. Matt. 5:6

Written by admin on May 27th, 2007

Righteousness is defined as being right with, or aligned with God. Those, Jesus promises, who seriously want to be right with God will get their wish. Here again the presence of the Holy Spirit in one’s life makes this rightness possible.

Personally, I have found that as I have grown older the desire to be righteous has grown within me. Coupled with this is a growing realization of my unrighteousness. In reflecting upon my life, I am convicted of my failings in the past, and more honest about my current failings.

I struggle some with understanding the promise of fullness. I am certainly not full in the sense of having achieved righteousness. But there is a sense of having filled in some of vacant places of my life with righteousness.
