The Bible tells us that we are made righteous when we believe the following:
1/ Romans 5:9Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. We are made righteous or justified before God by the blood of Christ!
2/ Isa.61:10I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
Romans 3:22Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: Romans 5:18Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 2 Cor.5:21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. We are made righteous before God by the righteous of Christ!
3/ Romans 4:25Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification. 2 Cor.5:
17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
18And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
20Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.
21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. We are made righteous by the resurrection of Christ!
