No one can be righteous by their own efforts! We saw the depths of sinfulness of man in Romans 3:9-20, as “no one is righteous, not even one”. We were condemned by the Law and our sinfulness.
But praise Jesus, who is God, but came and fulfilled the Law as a perfect man! His death and resurrection on the cross provided justification, redemption, and atonement for our sins. We cannot do anything for it, but simply receive this gift by faith in Jesus Christ.
