20"But I warn you—unless your righteousness is better than the righteousness of the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven!

21But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants.3:21 Or can see God at work in what he is doing."John 3:13-21
John the Baptist Exalts Jesus
5But we who live by the Spirit eagerly wait to receive by faith the righteousness God has promised to us.
3There is joy for those who deal justly with others
and always do what is right.
2 Timothy 2:22
22Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.
18Oh, that you had listened to my commands!
Then you would have had peace flowing like a gentle river
and righteousness rolling over you like waves in the sea.
12I said, 'Plant the good seeds of righteousness,
and you will harvest a crop of love.
Plow up the hard ground of your hearts,
for now is the time to seek the LORD,
that he may come
and shower righteousness upon you.'
