Word of the Week: Righteousness

November 6, 2018

As we conclude our recent celebration of the Reformation, we are reminded of what the Biblical word "righteousness" means. Pastor Tom Naumann takes us through the meaning and the use of the word in Scripture. In the Bible, God's Laws describe the character of God and the standard by which human righteousness is judged. The problem is we are not able to attain the God's standard of righteousness. The only means by which this is possible for us is through the righteousness of Christ which becomes ours by faith. Jesus has exchanged our sin for His perfection. We are declared righteous by God on account of what Jesus has done for us (2 Cor. 5:19-21). Thanks be to God!
