See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. 1 John 3:1
Because we belong to God now, we are given over to his holiness. We are drawn into his righteousness. And God’s righteousness is not nearly as much about doing right as it is about being made right. Under God’s care, everything that is broken in us, everything that has gone astray and become wrong, is being made right.
