It is only by seeking God that we can become righteous. He is the God of all Righteousness; The Righteous one. When we seek Him with all our hearts, we become more and more like Him. He takes us from glory to glory. In Genesis 6:9 we read that Noah was a just man, perfect in His generation. Noah walked with God. In Genesis 7:1, the Lord says to Noah 'I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation.'

What was the key to Noah being righteous? Noah walked with God. Noah spent time with God. Noah was influenced by God. Noah was transformed by God. In a society where there was wickedness and corruption. The Lord was sorry that He had made man...and He was grieved in His heart. Genesis 6:5-6.  Yet in the midst of that squalor, corruption and violence, there was one man who was righteous. One man who chose not to be corrupt but to walk with God and He found favour in God's eyes.

Will God say of me 'I have seen that you are righteous before me in this generation? Phil.2:12-14 reads 'work out your own salvation with fear and trembling......that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and peverse generation among whom you shine like lights in the world holding fast the word of life....'  To seek God, we need to study and live out the word of God. In other words, we have to walk our talk. James 1:22-25 tells us to be doers of the word, not hearers only, decieving ourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in the mirror; for he observes himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and and continues in it and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what He does.' John 13 :17 reads 'If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.

Let me quickly mention some men recognized in the Bible:

  • Job - 'Job was blameless and upright, one who feared God and shunned evil' Job 1:1
  • Joseph - Joseph prospered in all he did because the Spirit of the Lord was upon Him. Gen 39:23
  • Enoch - Enoch walked with God. Gen. 5:22
  • David - David was a man after God's own heart - Acts 13:22
  • Saul - '...He is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before the Gentiles..' -Acts 9:15
  • Cornelius - a devout man and one who feared God and had a good reputation among all the Jews Acts 10:22.
  • Daniel - These men said ' we shall not find any charge against this daniel unless we find it against Him concerning his God.'  Daniel 6:5

What testimonies!
