Verses on Righteousness
1 Peter 2:24
He himself bore out sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds, you have been healed.
I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!
2 Timothy 4:7-8
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge will award to me on that day-and not only to me but also to all who have longed of this appearing.
