By Grace Are You The Righteousness of God

The Free gift of righteousness

 

However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness” (Romans 4:5 NIV2011). Righteousness is a gift. You can’t work for a gift. It’s just that—a gift. It comes as a person believes in the finished work of Jesus and trusts God for their right standing with Him. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8). Righteousness is a gift of God’s grace. It doesn’t come by anything you can do. It doesn’t come by working for the Lord. It is just handed to you by His grace through faith. You simply trust Him for it. You simply believe you have it. You become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. It’s all through the completed work of Jesus on the cross. It’s done and paid for. So just believe it.
