Bible reveals righteousness by faith in Jesus


But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being testified by the law and the prophets, even the righteousness of God, which is by faith of Jesus Christ to all and upon all those who believe, for there is no difference. Romans 3:21-22

Though the law of God reveals our sin and condemns us all, there is a way for us sinful human beings to be counted righteous and be acceptable in God’s sight. God tells us of this righteousness in the Bible. It is the righteousness of God He imputes to those who place their faith and trust in Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice on the cross.

O gracious and merciful God, forgive my sins and count me righteous in Your eyes through faith in Christ Jesus, Your Son and my Savior. Amen.
