Righteousness is the fruit of Messiah's work in your heart. "They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit." Jeremiah 17:8 You are a tree planted by the waters, drink deeply from the water and be clothed with the righteousness that Jesus our Messiah gives you as He stands before God as your advocate. Remain in the vine and produce much fruit.
"You women who are so complacent, rise up and listen to me; you daughters who feel secure, hear what I have to say!" Isaiah 32:9 Rekindle your first love and fight complacency. You cannot afford to let dullness enter your life in this season. Stay awake.
