How was righteousness served in the Bible


Paul, apostle to the Gentiles

11Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, Acts 9:15
Gal 1.15
apart to preach the gospel of God, 2that he had previously promised through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures, chap
3from his son who was born cape
of the family of David according to the flesh, 4Acts 13:33
who is instituted as the Son of God in power according to the Spirit who sanctifies through the resurrection from the dead - Jesus Christ our Lord. 5Through him we received grace and apostleship, chap
Establishing obedience of faith for the sake of his name Acts 26: 16-18
Gal 2.79
among all pagans, 6to whom you also belong, who are called by Jesus Christ.

7To all of God's beloved and 1 Cor. 1: 2
Eph 1,1
called saints in Rome: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!

Paul's wish to come to Rome

8First Corinthians 1: 4
I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, chap
that your faith will be spoken of all over the world. 9Because 2 Cor 1:23
Phil 1.8
1st thes 2.5
God is my witness, whom I serve in my spirit through the gospel of his son, that I am in Eph 1:16
1. Thess 1,2-3
remember yours without ceasing 10and always implore in my prayer whether it would like to comply with God's will, chap
that I come to you. 11Because I long to see you, so that I can impart something to you in the form of a spiritual gift to strengthen you, 12that is, that I am comforted together with you by your and my faith that we have with one another.

13But I don't want to keep quiet about you, brothers and sisters, chap
that I have often resolved to come to you - but have been hindered so far - so that I may also produce fruit among you as among other heathen. 14I owe it to Greeks and non-Greeks, wise and non-wise; 15therefore, as much as I care, I am willing to preach the gospel to you also in Rome.

The gospel as the power of God

16For Ps 119:46
2. Tim 1,8
I am not ashamed of the gospel; because it is a 1 Cor. 1.1824
Power of God, which makes you happy1,16 Another translation: "a power of God for salvation". All who believe, chap
the Jews first and also the Greeks.17Because in it the righteousness that is valid before God is revealed, chap
which comes from faith in faith, 1:17 literally: "For the righteousness of God is revealed in him by faith to faith" (cf. 3:21); See factual and verbal explanations on "God's righteousness". As it is written (Hab 2: 4): "The righteous will live by faith."

The godlessness of the heathen

18For God's wrath is revealed from heaven over all ungodly life and all injustice of men who hold down the truth through injustice. 19For Acts 14.15-17
what can be known of God is evident among them; for God revealed it to them. 20Because his invisible being - that is his eternal power and divinity - has been since the creation of the world, if one perceives it with reason, Ps 8: 4
can be seen in his works. So they have no excuse. 21For although they knew about God, they did not praise him as God or thank him, but fell into nothingness in their thoughts, and Eph 4:18
their foolish heart is darkened. 22Those who thought they were wise are related to 1 Cor. 1:20
Become fools 23and have exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image like that of a perishable man and birds and four-footed and crawling animals. Moses 20: 4
Deuteronomy 4: 15-19
Ps 106: 19-20
Jer 2.11

24That is why God gave them over to impurity in the desires of their hearts, so that they themselves dishonor their bodies. 25They perverted God's truth into a lie and worshiped and served the creature instead of the Creator, who is praised forever. Amen.

26That is why God gave them up into shameful passions; for with them women have exchanged natural intercourse with unnatural intercourse; 27Leviticus 18:22 have the same
1 Cor 6.9
men have abandoned natural intercourse with women and are passionate about one another and have brought men with men shame on themselves and received the reward for their aberration, as it had to be, in themselves.

28And just as they did not care to know God, God gave them up in the wrong way so that they do what is not right, 29full of injustice, wickedness, greed, malice, full of envy, murder, strife, cunning, wickedness; Ear blower, 30Slanderer, despiser of God, wicked, haughty, boastful, inventive in evil, disobedient to parents, 31unreasonable, unfaithful, loveless, ruthless. 32They know that those who do such things deserve death according to God's law; but not only do they do it themselves, they also take pleasure in those who do it.
