Our Lord is upright and in Christ we believers are also. We are clothed in His righteousness and given His Spirit who teaches us how to walk in His way.
“I am overwhelmed with joy in the LORD my God!
For he has dressed me with the clothing of salvation and draped me in a robe of righteousness.
I am like a bridegroom in his wedding suit or a bride with her jewels. ” Isaiah 61:10 NLT

but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;”
