Part 6: Right standing with God

(This is part 6 of 10 parts in this class)


What does it mean to be righteous? It means to be in right standing with God or to be able to stand right before God.

You can never come into a place of right standing with God by your own diligence in law keeping. The Bible declares,

For all have sinned.

Romans 3:23 - NKJV


Thank God there is a righteousness available to you and me that has nothing to do with what we have managed to achieve by our law keeping. This righteousness is the righteousness of God and it is quite apart from the law.

Now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets.

Romans 3:21 - NKJV


What is this righteousness that is apart from the law? It is one that is "given to, and operating in, all who have faith in Jesus." Romans 3:22 - J.B. Phillips' translation.
