YOU ARE RIGHTEOUS
3 John 2 NKJV
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
1. DON’T STOP AT FEAR
2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Psalm 34:4 NKJV
I sought the Lord, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears.
Psalm 23:4 NKJV
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me;
Job 3:25–26 NKJV
For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me, And what I dreaded has happened to me. 26 I am not at ease, nor am I quiet; I have no rest, for trouble comes.”
And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9 Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” 10 So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.”
2. Walk In Righteousness
2 Corinthians 5:21 NKJV
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
YOU ARE RIGHTEOUS.
RIGHTEOUSNESS IS NOT WHAT YOU DO, BUT WHAT YOU ARE!
James 5:16 NKJV
Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
RIGHTEOUSNESS IS A FREE GIFT
You cannot do anything to earn this righteousness—it is a gift from God.
They who receive the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall reign in life through one man, Jesus Christ,”
3. GET DRESSED
Ephesians 6:14 NKJV
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation,He has covered me with the robe of righteousness,As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments,And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem.
How do we put this robe on?
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
