Righteousness and the Bible

We become righteous through Christ.
"God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God." II Corinthians 5:21, NIV
"This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe." Romans 3:22, NIV

Our righteousness is in the Lord.
"In the Lord have I righteousness and strength." Isaiah 45:24, KJV

We do not become righteous by being good.
"We are all infected and impure with sin. When we put on our prized robes of righteousness, we find they are but filthy rags. Like autumn leaves we fade, wither and fall. And our sins, like the wind, sweep us away." Isaiah 64:6, TLB

We are not righteous by nature, God makes us that way.
"Create in me a new, clean heart, O God, filled with clean thoughts and right desires." Psalm 51:10, TLB5

Meaning of Righteousness

Righteousness (also called rectitude) is an important theological concept in Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. It is an attribute that implies that a person's actions are justified, and can have the connotation that the person has been "judged" or "reckoned" as leading a life that is pleasing to God. Righteousness is also used as an attribute for God. Psalm 2 speaks of one being shielded by God and receiving favour because of righteousness.6
