Our Connection To God's Righteousness
The statutes of the LORD [are] right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD [is] pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the LORD [is] clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the LORD [are] true [and] righteous altogether.
The world has a way of measuring goodness and quality: the longer something lasts, the more highly it’s valued. What does that say about the quality of God’s righteous standards? The Bible teaches that the Word endures forever. By our own standards, God’s righteousness is of the highest quality, and cannot be matched. The Word of God was conceived by the Father, authored by the Spirit, and fulfilled by the Son. So, the Word is perfect in it of itself, not needing any outside influence to make it prized. This is why God is the source of all goodness and righteousness, and why our pursuit of righteousness must come from His Word.
