"For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish." - Psalm 1 V6
"I said in my heart, "God shall judge the righteous and the wicked, for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work." " - Ecclesiastes 3 V16
God will judge the wicked and reward the righteous one day. So how can one become righteous, for the Bible says, "There is none righteous, no not one" (Romans 3 V10)? The answer is that we are clothed with the righteousness of Christ because of His sacrifice on the cross. God no longer sees us as unrighteous, though in the true sense we all are. God will reward the righteous because they believed in His Son Jesus Christ and accepted Him into their heart. The judgment of God is real and it will soon come one day upon the wicked, who reject the Son, but the grace of God is available today and it is a free gift of God to all mankind.
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
