SERMON NOTES/REFLECTION

I. LIVING IN THE WORLD
a. In what ways do we try to prove to God we are able to use our own means to make ourselves righteous?
b. How many times can you count being "unfaithful" or "unrighteous" before God? (Mine, Pastor Trevor, is way too many to count!)
c. What goes through your mind or what type of thoughts does the devil want you to have when you have fallen moments in your relationship with Jesus?

II. ABIDING IN THE WORD
a. Read: Matt.5:6; Lk.11:13; Rom.3:10,24-25,5:19;8:10; 1Cor.1:30; 2Cor.5:21; 1Pet.2:24; Titus 3:4-5a
b. What verses stand out to you? How might God be speaking to you through these verses?
c. Based on your faith-relationship with Jesus, whose righteousness is declared over you? How did Jesus make this possible?

III. GROWING IN THE WAY
a. How is it possible to spiritually grow and mature in Christ's righteousness?
b. What evidence should you look for to know you are growing in Christ's righteousness & character?
c. What do you have to surrender to the Cross of Christ (death)? What area might you need to pray for the Spirit's abiding presence and power to help bring life/growth?

"May the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it." - 1Thes.5:23-24
