Do we have a righteousness? We have none of our own.
People need a righteousness to get rid of guilt and have peace. By doing such goodness things, people feel safe and secure. Do they?
The righteousness belongs to God only, and His righteousness given to us when we accept and receive Jesus as savior who died at the cross in order to save our lives and have an everlasting life. For His righteousness abides in Him. and everyone, through Holy Spirit, who accept and believe in Jesus Christ will be justified and called the righteous. (Romans 3:21-31)
