19 We have known that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world may be held accountable to God. 20 Because no one is declared righteous before him by doing the works of the law, because through the law comes the knowledge of sin. 21 But now apart from the law a way to the righteousness of God (which is attested by the law and the prophets) has been disclosed– 22 namely, a way to the righteousness of God through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. 24 But they are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
a way to God’s righteousness
What the Bible does for us all is convict us of our depravity, and our inability to do anything about the problem. Enter Christ, who made a way for us to experience God’s righteousness by taking the penalty for our sin upon himself.
Thank you LORD, for making a way for believers to enter into your righteousness.
