    Righteousness quotes by:    

People must have righteous principals in the first, and then they will not fail to perform virtuous actions.

    Author: Martin Luther

What we count the ills of life are often blessings in disguise, resulting in good to us in the end. Though for the present not joyous but grievous, yet, if received in a right spirit, they work out fruits of righteousness for us at last.

    Author: Matthew Henry

Every tear of sorrow sown by the righteous springs up a pearl.

    Author: Matthew Henry

Prayer is the first thing wherewith a righteous life beginneth, and the last wherewith it doth end.
- Richard Hooker

    Author: Assorted Authors

Intensity is a law of prayer. God is found by those who seek Him with all their heart. Wrestling prayer prevails. The fervent effectual prayer of the righteous is of great force.

    Author: Samuel Chadwick

The Apostle is hence telling us that inasmuch as sinners cannot be saved through their efforts, so we who have been regenerated likewise cannot be perfected through any righteous acts of our flesh. How vain do such righteous deeds continue to be!

    Author: Watchman Nee

God has work to do in this world; and to desert it because of its difficulties and entanglements, is to cast off His authority. It is not enough that we be just, that we be righteous, and walk with God in holiness; but we must also serve our generation, as David did before he fell asleep. God has a work to do; and not to help Him is to oppose Him.

    Author: John Owen

At the moment of temptation, sin and righteousness are both very near the Christian; but, of the two, the latter is the nearer. Those alone labor effectively among men who impetuously fling themselves upward towards God.

    Author: Charles H. Brent

It is appalling to think of a power so strong that it can annihilate with the irresistible force of its grinding heel; but it is inspiring to consider an Almightiness that transforms the works of evil into the hand-maidens of righteousness and converts the sinner into the saint. And it is this latter power which eternal Love possesses and exhibits. He persistently dwells in the sinner until the sinner wakes up in His likeness and is satisfied with it.

    Author: Charles H. Brent

Our righteousness is in Him, and our hope depends, not upon the exercise of grace in us, but upon the fullness of grace and love in Him, and upon His obedience unto death.

    Author: John Newton

The One who calls you to a life of righteousness is the One who by our consent lives that life of righteousness through you!

    Author: Major Ian Thomas

If we walk in righteousness He will carry us through.

    Author: A.B. Simpson
