Your Religious Values Determine Your Future

Bible Summary. If we have religious values based on the teachings of Jesus Christ, we can be free from sin and death. If we have religious values that are spiritually-minded such as truth, goodness, and love, we will have a life of peace and joy. If we hold our fleshly desires in higher regard, we do not value God and are not in right standing with Him. Christ enables us to be dead to sin, and through righteousness we have the Spirit of eternal life in us. See below for Biblical commentary and scriptures on religious values.

Religious Values Based on Jesus Can Free Us From Sin and Death.

All we need to do is accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Romans 8:2 advises us that religious values based on Christ frees us from sin and death.

Your Religious Values Determine Your Future.

According to the Bible your religious values determine your future in life and in the hereafter. If you have religious values that are spiritually-minded such as truth, goodness, and love, you will have a life of peace and joy. This is what Jesus teaches us if we will believe Him. Romans 8:6 advises us that to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Romans 8:6, “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”


Righteousness, A Religious Value That Results in Eternal Life.

Only through Jesus can the Spirit of God dwell in us and for us to be in right standing with God. If the Spirit of Christ does not dwell in us, the religious value of righteousness is not in our heart. Because we hold our fleshly desires in higher regard, we are not in right standing with God. Christ enables us to be dead to sin, and through righteousness we have the Spirit of eternal life in us. Romans 8:10 advises us that if Christ is in us, that the body is dead because of sin, and the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

Romans 8:10, “And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.”
