(Click here to read the introduction to "A Culture of Prayer")


As you pray this week, meditate on what the bible says about righteousness. May we come to experience living life out of receiving the gift fo righteousness--a relationship with God where we are fully accepted.

Below are some verses and quotes that you can meditate on. 

Genesis 15:6 | “Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.”

Romans 8:3-6 | “3 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.”

Romans 10:4 | 4 Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.

Philippians 3:8-9 | “8 What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in[a] Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.”

“RIghteousness: A right relationship with God (righteousness) is a gift from God that comes through atonement and cannot be achieved by observance of the law alone.”-Kenneth Bailey
