Path of Righteousness

"But the path of the just and righteous
is like the light of dawn,
that shines more and more brighter
until it reaches it's full strength
and glory in the perfect day."
Proverbs 4:18

"Righteousness in the Bible is a path. 
A path is something that we walk on,
  something we move along.
 It suggests motion, change, development. 
Some people would like righteousness
 to be some kind of static condition. 
“Well, I’m saved! Here I am; I’m righteous.
 All I need to do now is sit in church 
and sing hymns until the Lord calls me home.” 
 That’s a mistake.
 Any static condition in which you 
do not change, progress and develop 
is not the righteousness of the Bible."
-Derek Prince

Thus says the Lord:
"Stand by the roads and look;
and ask for the eternal paths,
where the good old way is;
then walk in it, and you will find
rest for your souls."
Jeremiah 6:16

On the Jesus Trail, between Nazareth and Capernaum, is a grassy hillside
called The Horns of Hattin, near the community of Arbel, Israel
 which is believed to be the possible site of the
Sermon on the Mount 

Walking In The Good Old Way

We are traveling on with our staff in hand,
Walking in the good old way;
We are pilgrims bound for the heavenly land,
Walking in the good old way.

Walking in the blessedness of love untold,
Traveling to a country that will ne’er grow old,
Jesus our Redeemer we shall there behold,
Home in the realms of day.

We are traveling on through a world of sin,
Walking in the good old way;
Though our foes are strong we have peace within,
Walking in the good old way.

We are traveling on in the Master’s Name,
Walking in the good old way;
And we sing His praise with a loud acclaim,
Walking in the good old way.

We are traveling on to the rolling tide,
Walking in the good old way;
But we trust in Him who is still our Guide,
Walking in the good old way.

"Songs of Love and Praise"
Written by Fanny Crosby

“If we walk in the light…the blood of Jesus Christ 
His Son cleanseth us from all sin.” 
1 John 1:7
