It’s crucial to teach children that righteousness has great benefits

Righteousness is found in God

By receiving JesusRomans 3:24

therefore righteousness is first and foremost positional.

and a gift from God

One needs to receive the gift though

the gift of righteousness comes wrapped in Jesus Christ

and very crucial.

know your position

condition

and know who you’re in Christ:

You’re the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus 2 Corinthians 5:21

that is you have right standing with God

Since Christ has been made our wisdom from God

and righteousness

plus sanctification

and redemption. 1 Corinthians 1:30

Practicing righteousness

We have to practice the righteousness that we have

in other words: live it

For in God we move

we live

move

and have our being Acts 17:28

for we are His off springs

It is about believing in Christ

and relying on His strength to live a holy life

since it is no longer us that live but Christ that lives in us. Galatians 2:20

therefore when we live our lives immersed in Him

Christ is seen not us

For we are God’s workmanship

that were created in Christ for good works Ephesians 2:10

Parents: Don’t push your kids into doing good

but allow them to soak in the Word of God

teach them who they really are

the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.

Encourage them to study the word of God

meditate on it Joshua 1:8

and speak it over and over.

For the more they speak it

the more they believe it.

Since faith comes by hearing Romans 10:17

and hearing the word of God.

When the word is in them

it’s part of them

Therefore it works in them

ultimately they obey it

by virtue of the Word in their hearts & minds Hebrews 4:12

Since the Scriptures transform how they think. Romans 12:2

Parents

speak the word over your children

pray the word over them

and confess the Scriptures

don’t tire

because in due time you shall repeat

Remind them who they are: “‘Come on Clare, don’t forget your are the righteousness of God in Christ.”

remind them God is working on them

for He finishes what He has started- Philippians 1:6

when they mess up

avoid reiterating the wrong they have done. https://superiordomain.net/raising-children/

but, encourage them

telling them they can do better

because greater is He who is in them than He who is in the world –1 John 4:4

They are over comers

because whatever is born of God overcomes the victory – 1 John 5:4

and they overcome the world by faith in Christ

not by their own effort

then they will behave good because of who they are not what their parents expect them to be

Or because they are avoiding punishment

nor society expects A, B, and C.

The righteous on the move

The journey

The steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord

Because the Lord is a lamp to their feet

and a light to their path- Psalm 119: 105

Therefore the path of the righteous is like the the light of dawn

shining brighter and brighter-Proverbs 4:18

until the day be fully come

As the righteous beholds the word of God

consequently they move from glory to glory- 2 Corinthians 3:18

and they move from victory to victory- 1 Corinthians 5: 57; 2 Corinthians 2:14 /victorious-children-of-God/

faith to faith Romans 1: 17

in this righteousness that is by Faith

and not of works

least anyone would boast Ephesians- 2:9

Remember

God does NOT want our human righteouses

For it is like filthy rags- Isaiah 64: 6

But be found in Him

not having your own righteousness
