1 John 2.29
If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him.
RIGHTEOUSNESS OF FAITH FULFILS THE LAW
But Jesus answered and said to him, “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.
RIGHTEOUSNESS COMES THROUGH SPIRITUAL HUNGER
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
RIGHTEOUSNESS ATTRACTS PERSECUTION
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
RIGHTEOUSNESS OF FAITH EXCEEDS THE LAW
For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
RIGHTEOUSNESS IS REVEALED BY YOUR FAITH
For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.
RIGHTEOUSNESS COMES THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS
to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
RIGHTEOUSNESS BRINGS BLESSING
just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works.
RIGHTEOUSNESS SPEAKS THE WORD BY FAITH
But the righteousness of faith speaks in this way,
RIGHTEOUSNESS MUST BE PRACTISED
1 John 3:7
Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous.
