God is Righteous

Meditations on the attributes of God.

Psalm 11:7 For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteous deeds; the upright will behold His face.

Psalm 145:17 The Lord is righteous in all His ways and kind in all His works.

Psalm 119:142 Your righteousness is righteous forever, and Your law is true.

Righteousness = purity of heart and honesty; being and doing right.

It’s amazing but God makes us righteous through Christ. He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21

…and may be found in Him (Christ), not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith. Philippians 3:9
