Romans 3 “20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin. 21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. 22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. 25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith.”
Nobody can be righteous by their works.
The good news is that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead.
He shed His blood to forgive all our sins and make us righteous FREELY by grace, which we receive by faith.
Everyone who believes in Jesus Christ is forgiven all sin, justified, made righteous without their works or actions.
