Righteousness through Faith in Christ – Romans 3:21-26

But now apart from the law
the righteousness of God has been made known,
to which the Law and the Prophets testify.
This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ
to all who believe.
There is no difference between Jew and Gentile,
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
and all are justified freely by his grace
through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement,
through the shedding of his blood
– to be received by faith.
He did this to demonstrate his righteousness,
because in his forbearance
he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished
– he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time,
so as to be just and the one who justifies
those who have faith in Jesus.

– Romans 3:21-26
