Today's notes:


Key Concepts:


What is God's righteousness observed doing?:

What does this tell us about God's righteousness?:

How is man reacting?:


Righteousness is not something we believe or construct or want it to be, it is detached from that, it is everything God is and does. Not only is it stated by Jesus to be such and such, it is divinely confirmed in Jesus and proven every step of His way. In the twelve it is proven that God by righteousness can make any man to become the precise man God calls him to be.

The righteousness connected and flowing between Father and Son is for the first time being transformationally experienced by the initial disciples of Jesus empowering them to do that which of their own they could not do and pointing them to do with it that which is purposed by God.

The one exception to the disciples' success in this matter may suggest a small measure of responsibility of each to properly maintain their personal connection to His righteousness via prayer and fasting. We are not told which pair of two failed at this, thus we are all warned to be diligent towards this.

Key Messages:

    What does this say about our present condition?
  1. Men/Women go about making themselves to be only what they themselves can personally obtain to be, which for all that they can potentially be falls short of what God can better make them (has designed them) to be. We are called to a glory and virtue beyond that of our own making; His glory and virtue.
