It is not the desire of God for us to have a checklist mentality, but with all things have His mind towards it. That is the Righteousness of God. In the beginning, Adam was Righteous; simply by being in the image of God and being the mold for all others; we are made not only in God’s image but also in His Righteousness. But as Adam, having it; we lose it in disobedience to the Righteousness of God. God is right and so is the Righteousness God. The two are inseparable.
