Chosen for Righteousness
The Lord gives us many gifts, some we want and some that call us into through trials. These build us to dwell deeply in the Lord. However, we were reminded that the greatest gift is the salvation which Christ has bought us. As Christ creates us into his first fruits, this means we are sanctified, made to reflect his righteousness.
How does being God's first fruit encourage you?
How does having knowledge that is intimate transform you?
Are there sins that God is calling you to forsake for his righteousness?
