Topic: The Believers Righteousness
Scripture Reading: “Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” (Romans 10:1-4 ESV)
Purpose: Understanding the Believers Righteousness which comes by faith and is of the Lord is paramount to Boldness in our earthly walk and talk with God and man.
1.The prophets told of a coming righteousness without law. Explain?
But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: (Romans 3:21,22)
2.Why do we need the righteousness of God?
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.(Romans 3;21-27)
3.How does the man receive this righteousness?
But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:8-10).
4.What is the salvation that our confession leads us toward?
“I have need to be baptized by You, and do You come to me?” But Jesus answering said to him, “Permit it at this time; for in this way it is fitting for us to fulfil all righteousness.” (Matthew 3;13-15)
5.Explain why we need the righteousness of this one man ,Christ Jesus?
For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous (Romans 5:17-19
6.Can we obtain our own righteousness?
Jesus is made unto us righteousness (1 Cor 1:30).
7.To whom do the redeemed belong to?
I have redeemed you I have called for you by the name of the ward mine (Romans 8:32).
8.Is righteousness a free gift or does it come by being religious?
For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.(Romans 5:17).
9.What accompanies this righteousness which is from Christ?
Behold I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions and overall the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means who do you (Luke 10 verse 19).
10.How do we stand in God’s presence without a sense of guilt or condemnation?
My soul shall be joyful in my God for he hath clothed me with the robe of righteousness a bridegroom decketh herself with ornaments and as a bride adorneth herself with jewels (Isaiah 61;10).
11.How do we break free from a sin-consciousness life?
For not the hearers of the law shall justified but the doers of the law (Romans 2;13).
For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; (Romans 8:6-8 NASB).
For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, (Romans 6:14,15)
Righteous sends the s what we wear When we are baptised into Christ we are baptised into his righteousness. Righteousness replaces the sin stained garments of guilt and shame.
This act is a public is a public declaration that my life is no longer my own. Baptism is where a man follows Christ in his death, burial and resurrection and so enters into the life of the Kingdom unavailable to him apart from the new birth and baptism (acts 2:38).
Questions to Consider: 1.Is righteousness part of our battle dress? (Ephesians 6) 2. Is righteousness a spiritual weapon?. 3.Does righteousness enable us to approach God, without shame?
