One way is through sin conscious mind, (law-based approach) looking for “what to do”, “steps to take”, and “formulas to follow for success”. The law based approach, is where the sin conscious person seeks to find their value and acceptance by what they do for God. By doing the right things attempting to be worthy (finding their worth) of His favor and acceptance. They try to become, what God has already made them in Christ! That is an impossible task.
John 5:39-40 MSG “You have your heads in your bibles constantly, because you think you’ll find eternal life (or the formula) there. But you miss the forest for the trees. These scriptures are all about me! And here I am, standing right before you, and you aren’t willing to receive from me the life you say you want.
The second way is through a righteousness conscious, (grace-based approach) looking at how much God loves you, how righteous and innocent you are in Christ. How loved you are, and what God has already done for you. Only believe, He has done it all for you at the cross.
How do you approach God’s Word?
In this teaching, you will learn what determines your worth, and how approaching the bible through a righteousness conscious, will cause you to truly Reign in life!
