What is Righteousness?

The character of being righteous; purity of heart and rectitude of life; the being and doing right; conformity in character and conduct to a right standard.

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 Corinthians 5:21)

•Acknowledge Him him as your Lord and saviour

God is the righteousness of men, therefore we must live a life of righteousness

•Repent and forsake your sinful ways

• Live to please Him at all times

Every person who confesses that Christ Jesus is Lord, repents of their sin and gives their heart to God is a child of God and belongs to Him. And in Christ, we are made right with God, we are His righteousness, and we have the power of Christ in us to live right. Joyce Meyer

God revealed himself through the Law, which pointed to Christ as its end and goal, commanded the obedience that comes from faith, increased transgressions, and shut the mouths of all humans because no one has performed the righteousness of the Law so as not to need a substitute.

John Piper

•Lord Jesus, i surrender my life to You today, please wipe away all my sins, write my name in the book of life, don’t let me ever go back to sin, thank You Jesus for saving me.

Congratulations!
