761 RIGHTEOUSNESS BY FAITHRomans 3, 8, and 1 Corinthians 1, NIV
Righteousness from God comes through faith
in Jesus Christ to all who believe.
There is no difference,
for all have sinned and fall short of
the glory of God,
and are justified freely by his grace
through the redemption that came
by Christ Jesus.

God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement,
through faith in his blood.
He did this to demonstrate his justice,
because in his forbearance he had
left the sins committed beforehand unpunished

he did it to demonstrate his justice at
the present time, so as to be just
and the one who justifies
the man who has faith in Jesus.

Therefore, there is now no condemnation
for those who are in Christ Jesus,
because through Christ Jesus
the law of the Spirit of life set me
free from the law of sin and death.

What, then, shall we say in response to this?
If God is for us, who can be against us?

He who did not spare his own Son,
but gave him up for us allhow will he not also,
along with him,
graciously give us all things?
Who will bring any charge against those

Who will bring any charge against those
whom God has chosen?
It is God who justifies.

It is because of him
that you are in Christ Jesus,
who has become for us wisdom from God
that is, our righteousness,
holiness and redemption.
