"Instruments of righteousness unto God"

"The necessity ... is for mankind so to live and act
that ... qualities of God may shine forth"

Biblical history abounds in accounts of men who through their purity, righteousness, and unselfishness clearly identified themselves as "instruments of righteousness unto God" (Rom. 6:13). The narrative of the life of Joseph provides ample evidence of the ability of an individual, through selfless service to God, to hold himself above the claims of injustice and maliciousness. Though subjected to humiliating experiences, Joseph maintained such a Christliness that those with whom he was associated recognized that "the Lord was with him" (Gen. 39:23). Because he served God, good, in his daily experiences, "that which he did, the Lord made it to prosper."
