2 Righteous by right rule following? Righteous: Morally right or justifiable, virtuous.
3 Romans 1:17 (NIV)17 For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”
4 Doesn’t your definition of righteousness include some type of rule following?
5 Jesus came to bring the good news—the good news that the righteous will live by faith.
6 Romans 3:22–23 (NIV)22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
7 Romans 3:24 (NIV)24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
8 Today, through the words of Jesus, we are going to be challenged to think about what you REALLY believe about righteousness and how a person becomes righteous in God’s eyes.

18 Luke 15:4 (NIV)4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? Page 337
19 Luke 15:5–6 (NIV)5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’
20 Luke 15:7 (NIV)7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
21 Who do you celebrate in life Who do you celebrate in life? People who have kept the rules the best…or people who are broken, humble, and express the greatest need of God?

30 Luke 10:26–27 (NIV)26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” 27 He answered, “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
31 Luke 10:28 (NIV)28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

37 Luke 10:35 (NIV)35 The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
38 Luke 10:36–37 (NIV)36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” 37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
