He diligently read it every day, studies it, delights in it, meditates on it, prefers it, loves its reproof and counsel, talks about it, hides it, defends it and prefers it above other things most precious, whether written or preached and its promises are all sweetness and marrow to him.
Jer 1:8; Ps 119:11, Ps 119: 97; Job 23:12; Acts 17:11, Col 3:16; 2 Tim. 4:7, Rom 7:9;
6. He’s Honest
7. He Pursues Truth
Psalm 85:10-11; Titus 1:1; Psalm 119:104

Righteous living is 100% obedience. God does not ask us to be perfect, but He does ask us not to sin. The last 5% is the hardest to give up. Look at Adam. Prov 15:9, Prov 21:21, 1 Tim 6:11, 2 Tim 2:22, 1 John 1:8-10

14. He Lives for God Alone
Gal 2:20 – I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Matt 7:21 – Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
15. He Lives God Word
James 1:22 – But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves
1 Peter 4:10 – As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
1 Timothy 4:12 – …but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
