If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone also who practices righteousness is born of Him.
He does not leave us alone to try to work this out.
We need to be trained in righteousness, and we also need to be enabled to do it.
The Holy Spirit is our personal trainer in righteousness.
What does that training look like? How does the Spirit enable us to win these battles against the flesh?
The Spirit deals with the flesh by enabling us to do three things.
The Spirit leads not only OUT OF but also INTO.
The New Testament also talks about righteousness as a fruit, as a result.
So righteousness is the gift, the declaration, the placement, a series of actions (manner of daily living), and the result.

Beloved - the ones being loved, the cherished ones
It is the truth of righteousness by faith.
Faith is that through which we are brought to the ground of who and what Christ is in resurrection.
In death Christ has dealt with all unrighteousness.
Where there was unrighteousness in Adam, there is now righteousness in the risen Christ.
Whenever you see that word beloved, bring in all that is true about us, the ones being loved, in ROM 8:31-39.
