1 John 3:10-11 [NASB]
By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.

Clement was careful with the friends he made as a freshman in college. He knew that God wanted to use him on campus, so he was very careful selecting his friends. His rule was simple; anyone who practiced unrighteousness was unrighteous and not a child of God, regardless of what he or she claimed to be. This is how he succeeded in making the right friends.

The Lord Jesus teaches us that we will know people by their fruits(see Mat 7:16). We also see from today's Bible text that anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God.

Our righteousness comes from the Lord; He helps us and empowers us to be righteous before Him. The Holy Spirit within us administers the grace of God to our spirits and empowers us to be righteous before God, but we must yield to the Spirit and not yield to the flesh. This is the secret of Christian righteousness.

No one truly filled with the Holy Spirit will continue to walk in unrighteousness because he will have received a renewed nature. No one who knows God will trust in his own righteousness as basis for access to God. He will know that the grace of Jesus that gives him access to God's throne is also responsible for his ability to be righteous.

Go into today yielding to the Holy Spirit and walking in a manner worthy of the Lord.

Ask the Lord to deliver you from everything that displeases Him and help you glorify Him with your body.
-Pas SD Abraham
