The Righteousness Of God Through Faith In Christ

3 For they did not know about God's way of making people right with Himself, so they attempted to establish their own way. In doing this they did not submit to God's way for being made right with Him. 4 So, Christ has brought an end to the law [as a means] of being made right with God for every person who believes [in Him]. 5 For Moses wrote [Lev. 18:5] about a person being made right with God by obeying the requirements of the law of Moses, that he would gain [never ending] life for doing this.
