Righteousness: State or quality of being righteous.
Malachi 4:2-3 But unto you that fear(fearing, reverent, afraid) my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 3And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith Yahuweh of hosts.
Mark 5:27-28 When she had heard of (Jesus) Yahushua (Yahuweh who saves, Yahuweh Redeemer), came in the press behind, and touched his garment. 28For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
Mark 5:30 And Yahushua (Jesus), immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?

Philippians 4:8-9 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue(703moral goodness), and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
People are going to look at you, your witness, your testimony, your strength in the word of truth. Are you walking in the truth? Is the power of righteousness in your life?
This quote is from Tim Timmons who reviewed the movie the Passion:
1.LIFESTYLE—Matthew 5…Let your light shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
2. LOVE ONE ANOTHER—John 13 & 17…If you love one another, then they will know that you are my disciples…that you might be perfected in unity, so that the world will know that Jesus was sent by God.
3. BLESS WHEN INSULTED—I Peter 3…Bless those who insult you…then they will ask you for the reason for the hope that is in you. PERSONAL 4.TESTIMONY—Romans 10…How shall they hear without someone to proclaim the message—someone who speaks his testimony.
This new movie is a tool for evangelism but God has chosen you as His tool!
Will you step out in righteousness and faith that the power of the kingdom of heaven is within you?
Father we thank you for the righteousness imparted to us from Your Son and the power of us living right lives by divine influence as Yahushua in Mark let it reflect in our lives.
