Title: Righteousness - an ingredient to Spiritual Growth

Notes:

Righteousness - an ingredient to Spiritual Growth

Problems will come, but we have the ability to overcome.

Righteousness is doing the right thing at the right time even when it is not convenient and no one is watching.

Do what you know you need to do even when no one is watching. Will you still do the right thing even if it is not convenient? If you found a million dollars in unmarked cash, no one was looking, and you knew you could get away with it, what would you do? Would you still do the right thing? At all times, we as Christians should obey God and do what we know is right.

2 Corinthians 5:21 - When we were called into salvation, we received the righteousness of God. God wants us to lead a righteous life and be humble. Everybody is worthy of our love. Look at people with love and compassion. Righteousness requires dealing with other people with love and kindness. Have a pure heart before God and before other people.

Psalms 25:9 - Live a life of constant prayer. Be connected to God. Do not forsake the gathering of the brethren. Where two or more are gathered in His name, He will be there. Don't let the devil minister to you. Don't let the TV minister to you. We need to be meek. We are not meek enough to listen to the will of God. The devil will bring excuses your way. If you aren't meek, you may find yourself listening to the devil giving you excuses. Trust God. Take the steps God gives you even when they are difficult or people call you insane. It's easy to take the easy way out, but you will gain nothing and risk losing everything. If you have a need, the first place you need to go is to God. Let him show you the way. Pray on all things. Trust God.

Proverbs 10:16 - Living a righteous life is made easier through the Holy Spirit. This life we are living is a constant struggle, but it is easier with the help of the Holy Spirit. It is only when you stand for the truth that you will stand with God.

Ephesians 6:10-11 - Be strong in the Lord. We have to do what God wants us to do. It is when we stand firm that we are strong in the Lord.

Ephesians 6:12-16 - Living a righteous life is work. Take up the armor of God and stand firm. Don't get angry or let anger get the better of you. Feel compassion and empathize with others. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you help those that would make you angry. The flesh and the spirit are always at war with each other. Put on the whole armor and be ready. Everything you do must be truthful. This is how we are going to defeat the devil.

We all fall. Get back up. Stand up. Stand strong. Serve God. Live above your senses. Don't let your senses guide you. What we see and feel is not always the truth.

Ephesians 6:17-18 - The sword of the spirit is the Word. Be knowledgeable in the Word. Take up your sword of the spirit. Give your problems to God and let him fight for you. Pray always. Pray without ceasing. Keep prayer in your heart. Does this mean pray while you are doing the dishes or on your commute to work? Yes! It certainly does. Pray with thanksgiving. There will always be issues to distract you if you let them. Tell God what you want. God will help you live a righteous life. "God, help me break out in joy!" We should always try to be in tune with God. Put your power of discernment to work. We need the Spirit of God to help us do what is right.

Take up perseverance especially when it is difficult. Don't wait to see what is going to happen. Have faith. Have faith in things not seen. God will make a way. Put God first. He will not fail you. There will always be issues in this life. The issues will come. You don't have to face them alone. Let God help you solve the issues.

As Christians we have the ability to overcome!

Say it with me: "I will overcome!"
