main verse Prov 21:21.
The Theme is a Declaration of the following;
- A righteous living - a quest to live in the standard of Christ revealed and based on the word of God. That also involves preserving a biblical balance on doctrine and belief to practice and live by.-1 Thes 5:23, 2 Tim 2:15
- A declaration of giving up all things that oppose to Righteousness - Eph 5:1-3
- A requirement for an answered prayer - James 5:16. We want to satisfy the heart of God by raising up intercessors whom God can use as His vessels to bless others.
- A declaration to Launch the years of abundance - I personally believed that 2014 is the start of the years of plenty that God will release to those whom He find after to please Him. - Ps 37:25, Prov 13:21.
The Pursuit of Righteousness is not an effort to gain it by own effort to be one, but a pursuit to keep phase, walk with the freely given righteousness of Christ. (2 Cor 5:21). It is a pursuit of a child of God to fully walk in the Spirit (Gal 5:24), a pursuit to manifest the fruit of the Spirit to the fullness as His grace abound.
It is specifically a "Pursuit of Christ" as St. Paul wrote in Philippians 3:7-9
7 But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8 What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ — the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith. NIV
21 He who pursues righteousness and love
finds life, prosperity and honor. NIV
JESUS IS LORD over 2014!
God bless! God bless! God bless!
