What! You mean my actions actually matter?! You mean I’m actually expected to walk in righteousness?!
This seems to be a very basic truth that is lost on western Christianity. Don’t be deceived. He that does righteousness is righteous. Your actions express what you truly believe.
1 John 3:7 King James Version (KJV)
Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
