Think on these things – Devotional – JUST

Whatsoever things are JUST

The Greek word translated as just or righteous in this scripture is DIKAIOS. It is pronounced de KI os. The Biblical meaning listed for Strong’s G1342 is righteous, just, right, meet. Meaning righteous, observing divine and human laws; one who is such as he ought to be.

When we check the contemporary definition of just we find:

definition: based on or behaving according to what is morally right and fair.
synonyms: fair · fair-minded · equitable · even-handed · impartial · unbiased · objective · neutral · unprejudiced · open-minded · nonpartisan · nondiscriminatory · anti-discrimination · honorable · upright · upstanding · decent · honest · righteous · ethical · moral · virtuous · principled · full of integrity · good · right-minded · straight · reasonable · scrupulous · trustworthy · incorruptible · truthful · sincere

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.

Philippians 4:8 (KJV)

That’s not fair

Have you ever said “that’s not fair?” I know I have from time to time. What we really mean is that we want what we don’t deserve or we don’t want what we do deserve. But that’s what’s not fair.

The phrase, the just shall live by faith is in the scripture four times. The first time is in Habakkuk 2:4. it is quoted in the New Testament three times. I think that means it is important. But how do you do that?

Put another way: The faithful person will live in a fair-minded, righteous, ethical, and honest way, full of integrity and sincerity.

If we are living by faith, we will be exemplifying the Living Word – Yeshua.

Think about JUSTICE

Yeshua paid the price for our sin – death. The least we can do is live a life reflective of our gratitude for his grace.

Related Scriptures

Romans 1:17 (KJV)For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

1 John 1:9 (NKJV) If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, forgive me of my sins. Help me to walk in sincerity and righteousness each day to reflect my gratitude for what Your Son did for me on the cross by doing what is right and just.

Amen
