What Does It Mean That Christ is a Righteousness Higher Than the Law?

Introduction

Christ’s righteousness is higher than the law (Romans 3:21-22).

The Law Points to Christ’s Righteousness

The law describes the standard of righteousness (Romans 7:12). Christ is the reality of the righteousness God wants us to have (Romans 10:4).

Christ’s Love and Reconciliation

Christ went beyond what the law required in his love (John 15:13). Christ reconciled his enemies to himself (Romans 5:10).

Christ is the Personification of Righteousness

The righteousness of God is not just rules or regulations, but a person (Philippians 3:9). Christ is the personification of righteousness (1 Corinthians 1:30).

Christ’s Righteousness is a Free Gift

We receive Christ’s righteousness as a free gift (Romans 5:17). This gift is given to those who believe in him (Romans 3:22).

Conclusion

Christ’s righteousness is beyond what we could attain through our own efforts (Galatians 2:16). We receive it as a gift apart from any works we could do (Ephesians 2:8-9).
