The Character of Christ - Righteousness
Righteousness is a vital force that comes from God. Faith in God’s Word will always lead to the kind of good works that bring honor to God. Believers can choose continued bondage to sin, or commit to God and be servants of righteousness. By submitting themselves totally to God, Believers are free to experience a righteous life, which reflects the very character of Christ. In this series, Dr. Betty R. Price describes the requirements for righteous living.
- Righteousness through Jesus is God’s way of declaring sinners right standing with Himself without compromising His character.
- The righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith (Roman 1:17).
- God’s righteousness captures the Believer, bringing him new thoughts, new motives and a new way of life.
- God’s character requires Him to judge sin, which shows His righteousness.
