Here is grace, friend: God bestowed peace, that is, salvation.

The Lord bestowed righteousness upon us. Paul made much of this. But consider these words of grace:

“He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.” (Psalms‬ ‭37:6‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

He brings and gives us righteousness, it’s a gift made possible by Jesus’ work.

We don’t earn it, had nothing to do with gaining it, so once we’ve got it, or, rather, He’s got us and so we’re secure.

But be careful, you may think you’ve got something by earning it, by your works, by your attendance. you can lose all of that with the snap of a finger, that false sense of religion, and surely you will if that’s what you’re trusting in.

Trust only in the grace of God for righteousness, only He can satisfy.
