BIBLE PASSAGE: PHILIPPIANS 4:8-9.

[8]Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

[9]Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

MEMORY VERSE: “The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.” Job 17:9.

INTRODUCTION: Some people think that it is not possible to live righteously in this perverse world. However, the Bible admonishes believers in Christ to make righteousness a way of life (Phil.4:8-9). God instructed Abram to walk uprightly (Gen.17:1) just as Job admitted that if anyone continues on the way of righteousness, their lives will get better and shine brighter (Job 17:9; Prov.4:18). It is, therefore, important for us to understand what it means to live a righteous life and its attendant benefits.

OUTLINES:
1. UNDERSTANDING A RIGHTEOUS LIFE
2. THE POWER OF RIGHTEOUS LIVING

1. UNDERSTANDING A RIGHTEOUS LIFE
Righteousness is ‘the character or quality of being right or just.’ It refers to the state of one who is as he ought to be before God and man (Acts 10:35; 24:16). It is holy and upright living by God’s standard. Righteousness reveals genuine salvation (1Jn.2:29). Works of righteousness include love for each other (1Jn. 3:10). It produces spiritual and visible fruits (Matt.7:16). We must live the kind of life that reflects Jesus Christ every day (Phil.2:5; 4:8).

Righteousness comes through faith in Jesus Christ (Phil.3:9). This is because God’s character is the source of all righteousness (Gen.18:25; Rom.9:14) and He takes great pleasure in righteousness (Jer.9:24). Righteousness requires a voluntary change (Eph.4:24). It combats sin (Ps.119:10-11). It regards discipline as productive (Heb.12:11).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Students should discuss why some believers find it difficult to live righteously.

2. THE POWER OF RIGHTEOUS LIVING
Righteous living makes you a partner with the Almighty God (Gen.18:17-19) and the moment you become God’s partner, certain things will begin to run away from you. These include sicknesses and diseases (Ex.15:26), devourers (Mal.3:10-11), sorrow (Prov.10:22), and fear (Prov.28:1).

Also, righteous living attracts certain things to you. These include:
1.The good of the land (Isa.1:18-19).
2.Overwhelming blessings (Deut.28:1-2).
3.Victory without a fight (Deut.28:7).
4.Continuous success (Ps.92:12; Jer.17:7-8).
5.Dominion (Deut.28:9-10, 13).
6.Living in abundance (Deut. 30:9; Lev.26:4).
7.Answer to prayers (1Pet.3:12).
8.Eternal life (Matt.25:46).

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Mention the benefits you have enjoyed so far from adopting a lifestyle of righteousness.

CONCLUSION The danger of unrighteous living is that whatsoever holiness drives away, sin attracts. Therefore, God expects us to live a righteous life.

QUESTIONS:
* What is righteous living?
* What are the benefits of partnership with God?

ASSIGNMENT: Students should mention five (5) instances where they did what was considered righteous and the blessing they enjoyed from doing such. (2×5=10 Marks).
