God displays and imparts righteousness. We are recipients of His righteousness. He is faithful to His promises and generous in charity and mercy. It is His love that maintains our relationship with Him and imparts righteous to us. We may turn away, and stray. He remains faithful and true. In our fallen nature, we struggle and sin. He continually calls us back from our brokenness and sin. He patiently waits for our return to shower us with His mercy.
We are transformed through His mercy and grace. Our relationship with Him is made righteous. We are made to know Him, to do His will, to serve Him. Through His grace we are drawn deeper, drink more deeply and increase in righteousness.
