Good news! Christ is our righteousness!
Righteousness is something we are going to be TRAINED IN!!
We need to be trained in righteousness, and we also need to be enabled to do it.
GOOD NEWS! God provides the training manual (the Bible), and He provides the coach - God the Holy Spirit.
GOOD NEWS! The New Testament also talks about righteousness as a fruit, as a result.
HEB 12:11 All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.
So righteousness is the gift, the declaration, the placement, a series of actions (manner of daily living), and the result.

A gift, a declaration, a placement, a manner of living, and a result.
In His death, Christ has dealt with all unrighteousness for us.
Where there was unrighteousness in Adam, there is now righteousness in the risen Christ.
It is the truth of the gospel -the GOOD NEWS!, the truth of righteousness by faith.
And now we are called to act accordingly, act as the sons and daughters and members of His body that we are.
We are being conformed to the image of God’s Son in glory. Everlasting GOOD NEWS!!
