“the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”Romans 3:22-23
And there it is. The righteousness of God apart from the law. Righteousness not earned by good deeds, but free through faith. Not generic faith. Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
All of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of Christ. We are broken and bankrupt but Jesus has more than enough righteousness to share. The good news of the gospel is that by believing in Jesus we get the very righteousness of God. Christ’s righteousness put in our account when we trust in Jesus as savior and Lord. Bankrupt to billionaire.
All have sinned—except Jesus. Jesus died so that by faith sinners could be made saints. You need the righteousness of God and that’s exactly what Christ offers to all who believe.
