Biblical Question: Where does righteousness come from?

Answer: Righteousness is a gift of God’s Grace.

Righteousness is produced in a believer’s moral being and character. Righteousness today under Grace (in the Church) is not based on human works. Man doesn’t seek righteousness in the body of Christ. Righteousness is found as a result of man’s faith and trust in the person of Christ.

Romans 5:17…For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.

They which receive…
They which receive…
They which receive…

Righteousness is received into the heart and character of man’s being. Righteousness comes from your faith in Christ. Righteousness is a changed moral character by the Grace of God. Righteousness is the fruit of God’s character produced in the believer’s character. Righteousness has nothing to do with…self.

The Bible says with the heart man beleiveth unto righteousness…

Romans 10:10…For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;

Man is made righteous, by Christ. Not by works. Not by human effort. Not by anything man does. Righteousness comes in to the heart of a believer from a righteous Christ.

Romans 5:19…so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

Isaiah 53:7…by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

“Righteousness has nothing to do with what man does. Righteousness flows into the human soul from the cross at Calvary. Righteousness is bestowed into the heart of a believer in Christ and therefore witnessed in the eyes of God”.

About rickroehm

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.
