12. Righteousness - Sanctification - Holiness


The righteousness of God, is all that God demands and approves, to be in good standing with Him; and is found only in Jesus Christ. By saving faith in Jesus Christ, the righteousness of God is imputed unto the believer( added to the believers account ).

Romans 3:21-22 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is manifested, being witnessed by the prophets.

Vs.22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe; for there is no difference.

Romans 3:26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness, that he might be just, and the justifier of him that believeth in Jesus.

1. The Example of Abraham

Romans 4:3 For what saith the scripture, Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

2. The Example of David

Romans 4:6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man unto whom God imputeth righteousness apart from works.

Romans 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one who believes.

3. The Example of Paul

Philippians 3:7-9 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.

VS.8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do but count them but dung, that I may win Christ.

VS.9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.



1. Positional

1 Corinthians 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Hebrews 10:10,14 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Vs.14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

2. Progressive

2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

PHILIPPIANS 1:6 being confident of this very thing, that he which began a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.

3. Completely

Philippians 3:20-21 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

Vs.21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

John 3:2 Beloved, now are ye the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. ( 1 Cor. 15:51-54 1 Thess. 4:13-18 )



The quality of conduct, character, and lifestyle, of born again believers, as they submit unto God and resist the devil, ( James 4:7 ) which is the out living of our right standing with God, ( righteousness ) which is by faith in Jesus Christ: as we grow in grace, knowledge and the truth of God; being conformed to the image of Jesus. ( Romans 8:29, 2 Corinthians 3:18 )

2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Hebrews 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.

1 Peter 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

2 Peter 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness.

Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, the ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the spirit of the Lord.


13. The Chastening of God

Hebrews 12:6-11 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

Vs.7 If ye endue chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

Vs.8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

Vs.9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

Vs.10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.

Vs.11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

Psalms 94:12 Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Lord, and teachest him out of thy law.

Proverbs 3:11-12 My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction:

Vs.12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

Revelations 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Self judgment and repentance averts the chastening of God

1 Corinthians 11:31-32 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

Vs.32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
