"As righteousness leads to life, So he who pursues evil pursues it to his own death." - Proverbs 11 V19
"I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain." - Galatians2 V21
Righteousness leads to life and the wages of sin is death. Our righteousness is as filthy rags to God and there is no one who can please God by works. We cannot attain the righteousness that the holiness of God requires of us. But there is a way and God Himself prepared the path for us to attain perfect righteousness and that is through His Son Jesus Christ. For those who are in Christ, the Holy Spirit of God provides guidance to live a sinless life, and the righteousness of Christ covers all our unrighteousness. Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
