Righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ.
God’s standard defines righteousness and His power enables it. As a result of the greater faith given to us, we are made righteous. Righteousness is the condition of being acceptable to God. No amount of personal effort will result in righteousness. It is not a behavioral modification, but complete heart transformation. “For our sake, He made Him to be sin who knew no sin so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Cor. 5:21). At the moment of salvation, we are given the position of righteousness and made acceptable by God.
Pray for motivation to seek to glorify Jesus in all actions.
