God Is Righteous
Construction Zone 3: The Goodness of God
Does God ever sin or do anything in a wrong or sinful way?
All God does is right and rightly done. Psalm 145:17 – The LORD is righteous in all His ways, gracious in all His works.
This Truth Makes
Take a careful look at the word “righteous.” What do the first five letters spell? They spell the word “right.” When we say that God is righteous, we mean that He is always right and that He always does the right things.
When we talk about God’s holiness and His righteousness, we are talking about Who He is and what He does. Since God is holy, He always acts righteously. God is the best and greatest of beings. Genesis 18:25b – “Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?”
God has complete power and all authority. He is in sovereign control of everything, and He does whatever
He wants. We can be thankful that whatever God desires to do is always going to be right.
