  • We live righteously because God saved us

    Paul’s writing to the Philippian’s said, I don’t want to be self righteous by obeying the law but I desire righteousness that comes by faith in Jesus Christ.

    First, let me say, I don’t believe Paul was saying we no longer need to live a righteous life. When we read Romans 6:1, Paul asked a question: “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?”

    Then Paul answers the question. “God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?”

For us, I put a lot more weight with the necessary part of taxes.
