  • MARK THE DATE. . . FRIEND DAY SUNDAY, APRIL 29th
  • Today we are studying the righteousness of Christ which comes to us on the basis of faith from: Philippians 3:9
  • Philippians 3:9b “ not having a righteousness of our own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes
  • from God on the basis of faith ” Philippians 3:9b
  • Imputed righteousness Imparted righteousness
  • *The word impute means “to pass to one’s account”. *It means that God places the righteousness of Christ upon our record when we trust in Jesus for our salvation.
  • When a sinner believes in Christ, he or she is spiritually united with Christ, and that union makes it possible for God to credit believers with the righteousness of Christ.
  • Christ’s righteousness is a gift which can be described as a wedding garment—a white robe of righteousness— completely covering us in Christ.
  • Isaiah 61:10 10  “I will rejoice greatly in the LORD,  My soul will exult in my God; 
  • For He has clothed me with garments of salvation ,  He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness ,  As a Bridegroom decks Himself with a garland, 
  • And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” Isaiah 61:10
  • Marriage of the Lamb Revelation 19:7-9   7  “Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His
  • bride has made herself ready.”  8  It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright  and clean; for the fine linen is the  righteous acts of
  • the saints.  9  Then he said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’” Revelation 19:7-9
  • This declaration (God declares us “Not Guilty”) is forensic in that the legal charges against us have been dropped and we have been declared righteous .
  • To be credited as righteous is to be conferred a legal standing of being forgiven and no longer liable to punishment.
  • This new status declares me righteous in God’s sight; free from the condemnation of sin, the fear of death , and accusations of the devil. Hebrews 2:14-15
  • Hebrews 2:14-15 14  “Since the children have flesh and blood, He too shared in their humanity so that by His death He might destroy him who holds the
  • power of death—that is, the devil—  15  and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death .” Hebrews 2:14-15
  • *The imputed righteousness of Christ is a gift; it cannot be earned. *This gift can only be received from a grateful heart by faith alone.
  • Matthew 11:28-29  28  “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest .  29  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and
  • humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”  Matthew 11:28-29 Jesus:give rest = justification We: find rest = sanctification
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS Impute – justification (give rest) Impart – sanctification (find rest)
  • * A little faith (even the size of a mustard seed) will take your soul to Heaven. * Great faith will bring Heaven to your soul! (Allowing Him to live in you)
  • 1 Peter 2:24 24 “Jesus Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness .”
  • Imputed righteousness Imparted righteousness
  • IMPART 1) to convey, or to grant   2) to bestow, or to transmit 3)to cause a transformation
  • Romans 1:11 11) “for I long to see you so that I may impart some spiritual gift to you, that you may be established”
  • 1 Thessalonians 2:8 8  “Having so fond an affection for you, we were well-pleased to  impart to you not only the Gospel of God but also our own lives”
  • IM PART 1) to convey, or to grant   2) to bestow, or to transmit 3)to cause a transformation
  • PART ICIPATE (1)To take part or to have a part; to part ake   (2)to possess some of the attributes or qualities of a person (Person)  
  • God im part s We part ake We part icipate
  • *Imputed righteousness – you have no participation in the event. *Im part ed righteousness – you do participate in the process.
  • Impartation is Christ releasing within us His very life so that moment-by-moment we may experience His presence enabling us to make righteous choices.
  • Get Thin, Stay Thin by Arthur W. Halliday, MD and Judy Halliday, RN *This book addresses the silent hunger of the starving soul. (the Bread of Life)
  • The miracle of His presence ! If we invite God in, He will speak to our souls, not in words but in the way Love expresses itself – by His presence!
  • *God’s grace empowers us to choose rightly, to choose righteousness. *His grace brings our character into agreement with His character.
  • The miracle of His presence in our lives brings about our transformation . Only God can transform a life by imparting His righteousness to us.
  • *His grace brings freedom that conforms us from within . *Legalism is bondage that constrains us from without .
  • Legalism tells us to shape up and that is a deception from God’s enemy because nothing from the outside can create a pure heart .
  • You can’t have perfect behavior when you have an impure heart .
  • The Law was never meant to make us righteous but to: 1) reveal the impurity of our hearts and 2) reveal our desperate need for a Savior.
  • The Law taught us the behavior befitting a right relationship with the Holy of Holies and it also produced irremediable distress .
  • But God’s progressive revelation paints a different picture: it places guilt in the heart of man.
  • The Gospel shows the impossibility of a man with an impure heart of being able to wipe out his guilt through perfect living.
  • Therefore, our remedy cannot come from man but only from a gracious God Who grants forgiveness to those who confess their guilt instead of attempting
  • to justify themselves. *If you fear intimacy with God it makes it difficult to receive His grace.
