Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
2 Corinthians 5:17
So if anyone is in union with Christ, he is a new being; the old state of things has passed away; there is a new state of things.
In it God's way of uprightness is disclosed through faith and for faith, just as the Scripture says, "The upright will have life because of his faith."
But now God's way of uprightness has been disclosed without any reference to law, though the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it.
For just as that one man's disobedience made the mass of mankind sinners, so this one's obedience will make the mass of them upright.
So there is no condemnation any more for those who are in union with Christ Jesus.
For in their ignorance of God's way of uprightness and in the attempt to set up one of their own, they refused to conform to God's way of uprightness.
1 Corinthians 1:30
But you are his children, through your union with Christ Jesus, whom God has made our wisdom??ur uprightness and consecration and redemption,
and be known to be united to him, with any uprightness I may have not based on law but coming through faith in Christ??he uprightness that comes from God through faith.
