Living in righteousness is imperative in God’s eyes for Him to fulfil His promises to you. The truth is that you can’t expect God to bless you when you willfully break His commandments. In this post we go through some Bible verses on righteousness.

Ed Cole used to say, “Prosperity is the natural, sequentially-ordered result of righteousness in life.” Through the Christian Men’s Network he trained men around the world to become Christlike men to maximize their manhood.

If you study people whose lives are progressive you’ll find that they are in right standing with God. Examples include Tom Deuschle, Alex Kendrick and John C Maxwell.

Living in sin and experiencing a successful life is an oxymoron. Righteous living is a decision just as it is with living in sin.
