Practical Living: Righteous Living (Teaching #856)

Practical Living: Righteous Living

The righteousness we have been provided through the ministry of Jesus Christ ensures our eternal life.  In this teaching, we’ll look at how righteousness helps us spiritually and what it means for our daily life.  By the way, being righteous basically means you are right before God; there is no conflict or division between you and God, no disagreement.

Righteousness is the God-given justification (freedom from the penalties of sin) whereby a person stands in the presence of God without any consciousness of sin, guilt, or shortcomings.

Because we have been justified, we are righteous.

Romans 8:26-39 – More than conquerors.

The whole world is trying to earn righteousness by their own deeds, which they can never do.  We have the joy of walking in the righteousness which he already accomplished for us, by his perfect, accomplished believing as our lord and savior.

Practical Living: Turn Arounds, Part 1 – Paul (#857)

Practical Living: Turn Arounds, Part 1 – Paul  (#857)

Today we’re going to talk about turnarounds.  We often here about corporate turnarounds, where an experienced manager or leader is brought in to get a company profitable again.  God is real good at turnarounds and He can take people who are in real tough situations and turn things around so they come out victorious.  We’ve read many of these records before, but to address some recent questions we’ve had regarding Paul, we’ll take another look first at some Old Testament records and then we’ll review the records pertaining to Paul in the New Testament.

Practical Living: Raise Your Vision (Teaching #855)

Raisie Your Vision

We may have challenges, problems, pressures and things maybe are way beyond our physical and mental ability to deal with, but God’s ability and resources are much bigger than our abilities and any challenge we might face. We need to raise our vision in life beyond what you and I can do to match what God can do for us. He wants to help us, protect us, and supply our needs and give us deliverance in every area of life.
