Virtue requires that you have moral excellence in the lost and dying world that you see around you. Virtue is your ability to walk in God’s Righteousness, and Goodness, which will come from having a strong, dedicated relationship with God, through Jesus. God desires you to have right standing with Him at all times, always abiding in faith in Him. You are to abide in Jesus’ right standing with God, The Father, by faith, in love. Expect God to faithfully keep all of His Promises. Worship and glorify Him at all times. “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.” Philippians 4:8-9.
Virtue is doing the right thing, giving God the proper priority, time, reverence, and respect that He Is Due. Your focus should always be firmly fixed on Jesus Christ. Refuse to look on anything or anyone else. “…let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith…” Hebrews 12:1-2. Christianity is about being right with God. “For in him we live, and move, and have our being…” Acts 17:28. In everything, we are to walk by faith and not by sight, and we must not judge others. See 2 Corinthians 5:7, 5:16. Our righteousness comes only through Jesus Christ. We do not become righteous by our works, but our works demonstrate our love for Jesus and our desire to glorify Him. Do not focus your sight on the problems, instead at all times simply focus on and look unto Jesus.
Consecration and holiness are expected of every Christian Believer. You are to set yourself apart to God, always giving Him the priority He Deserves in your life. God Demands and Expects that you will give Him the first, and the best, of everything that you have. This starts with your intimacy with Him, which includes how much undivided, quality time, commitment, attention, worship, reverence, devotion, and love that you give to Him. Is God the priority in your life, or do you permit people, your own self, other things, tv, or entertainment to have priority over God? Being a good and faithful steward is required of every Believer. “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.” 1 Corinthians 4:2. “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;” Colossians 3:2, 3:23. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33. “For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.” 1 Corinthians 4:20. Flee all distractions and love The Lord with all your heart and soul.
