Righteousness through Faith

We looked at righteousness in February.  Righteousness and faith are closely tied however.  In fact, it is almost impossible to talk about one without the other in regard to salvation.

Righteousness is only obtained through faith.  If you ask the common person on the street, they will say that they believe they are going to heaven.  If you follow up by asking why they expect to go to heaven, their faith isn't likely to be mentioned unless they are a Christian.

Many people believe that they are righteous enough on their own.  They compare themselves to others and make the determination that they do less wrong than other people, so they deserve to go to heaven.  Of course this standard is relative and each person considers themselves good because there's always someone worse than them or something worse that they could be doing.

The truth is that we aren't righteous.  We might sin less than some other people, but sin is still sin.  It doesn't matter how little or much, sin separates us from God. 

Faith is required for the forgiveness of our sins.  It is faith that gives us righteousness from God.  This is what is necessary for salvation.  Faith is the only thing that will get us into heaven.
