Sermon Intro: 9/11
Ephesians 6:14 (NIV2011)
14  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place…
What is righteousness?
What is righteousness?
The quality of conforming to God’s standard of holiness and to His moral commands.
2 Corinthians 5:21 (NIV2011) 

God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Before God, Christians have the righteousness of Christ
Example: Visit to ICU
Satan attacks our righteousness before God by shaming us
Ephesians 5:8 (NIV2011)
8  For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light…
Before others, Christians are called to righteousness in Christ
1 John 2:6 (NIV2011)
6  Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.
Ephesians 6:10 (NIV2011) 

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 

Example: Cruise Ship
Satan attacks our righteousness before others by seducing us away from Christ
James 4:7 (NIV2011)
7  Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
THIRD: Why is this important?
Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV2011)
14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.
16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Christian righteousness preaches the gospel
Example: Retiring CEO
