"Psalms of Ascent Series", Quiet Time Coaching: Episode 191, Psalm 129vv3-4
‘Righteous’ meaning right in his dealings with people - it is a relationship concept, not a moral stance. Our perseverance depends more on God’s determined faithfulness to us, than on ours to Him. “Christian discipleship is a process of paying more and more attention to God’s righteousness and less and less attention to our own; finding the meaning of our lives not by probing our moods and motives and morals but by believing in God’s will and purposes; making a map of the faithfulness of God, not charting the rise and fall of our enthusiasms.” Peterson, 133.
The way God has treated us in the past gives us confidence for the future. Because of the heroes of Heb 11, we are able to take on board the call of Heb 12:1-3. God’s righteousness is made manifest by his rescuing acts, Ex 3:15, Ex 6:6.
