YAHWEH OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS DECEMBER 16, 2012 Background Passages Jeremiah 23:5-6 Romans 3:1-26; 10:1-13 LifeWords Bible Studies for Life: KJV Winter 2012-2013 What This Lesson Is About: Everything the sovereign and powerful God does is right. Righteousness defines God. He is righteousness, and He is the source of righteousness. Why This Lesson Is Important: Our human tendency is to set our own standards for what is right. Our standards usually allow us to justify the way we are already living. However, there is only one objective standard, and our own measure of righteousness is far from it. This lesson is important because it helps adults discover God’s standard of righteousness, a standard seen only in Jesus Christ. How This Lesson Can Impact Your Life: This lesson can help you understand that who you are in Christ is based on who Christ is. God Promises Righteousness……………….…..Jeremiah 23:5-6 Jesus Reveals Righteousness……………...……Romans 3:21-26 We Receive Righteousness from Christ Alone……………………Romans 10:1-4; 9-10 Transformed We cannot do enough, give enough, sacrifice enough, or serve enough to earn God’s favor. Thankfully, God has provided a way for us to approach Him. Because God is holy, only righteous people can enjoy a right relationship with Him. On the basis of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, we can be forgiven of our sins, receive God’s forgiveness, and receive God’s righteousness in Christ. We must repent of our sins and trust Christ. When we do, God forgives our sin and imparts to us Christ and His righteousness - all without cost to us. At the same time, having Christ in our lives demands everything of us. How can salvation be free, yet costly at the same time? As we understand the value of the gift God gives us, we are compelled to live lives that showcase our gratitude to Him.
