uplifting thoughts and inspiration on faith
Romans 3:22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.
Romans 4:5 However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness.
Jesus is righteousness. When we believe in and have faith in Jesus we are credited before God as having the same righteousness He has. There is no way to obtain the righteousness God requires other than through Jesus Christ. Righteousness is what enables us to talk to God, to come boldly before His throne of grace and have a relationship with Him. The righteousness of Jesus is the barrier between our frail human experience and all the evil Satan has planned for us.
