    Chapter Three – Conforming to Righteousness

    Chapter Three
    A lack of understanding about righteousness can result in approval addiction
    When we are made right with God, we begin to think, talk, and act right
    Say daily: “I am the righteousness of God in Christ, therefore I can produce right behavior”
    Think Right
    The fruit of your life will be what you believe you are
    Our sin is swallowed up in the His righteousness (Romans 5:17)
    We must learn to think and believe in our righteousness
    Talk Right
    Be careful what you say about yourself
    We need to learn to speak victoriously
    Act Right
    If we want others to accept Jesus, we must show them that having a relationship with Him makes a real difference in our lives
    God has given us the power to make the right choices and manifest right behavior
    We are his representatives on earth and we need to represent Him well (2 Corinthians 5:20)
    Don’t settle for anything less than the best God has to offer you
    Doctrine Versus Liberty
    We are the salt and the light (Matthew 5:13-16)
    Our lives should make people thirsty for what we have
    It is not spiritual to feel bad about ourselves
    Religious and Righteousness
    Don’t add guilt to His sacrifice
    Our goal is not to sin, but God as provided Jesus
    We feel we are earning God’s forgiveness by feeling guilty
    Succumbing to a lifetime of guilt is just another form of addiction approval
    Fellowship With God or With Your Sin?
    Fellowship with God strengthens us to overcome our problems
    Meditating on our faults weakens us, but it’s His grace that strengthens
    He wants you to run to Him, not away from Him
    Accidental Sin
    “I am not where I need to be, but I thank God I am not where I used to be”
    We accidentally make mistakes, but it’s not the desire of our hearts to do wrong
    God sees our hearts and not our sins
    Our acceptance isn’t found in being like someone else, but in being who are through faith in Christ
    Not being perfect at everything doesn’t mean we have no value
    None of us has any value except what we have in Christ (Ephesians 2:14)
    We all have gifts, but they are different (Romans 12:3-8)
    The world’s standards aren’t God’s standards
    Jesus is our standard, not any other person
