Righteousness for believers (Rom 10:4)

“Christ

Is the end

Of the law.

Thus,

There may be

Righteousness

For everyone

Who believes.”

τέλος γὰρ νόμου Χριστὸς εἰς δικαιοσύνην παντὶ τῷ πιστεύοντι.

Paul said that Christ (Χριστὸς) was the end or purpose of the law (τέλος γὰρ νόμου).  Thus, there may be righteousness (εἰς δικαιοσύνην) for everyone (παντὶ) who believes (τῷ πιστεύοντι).  Paul indicated that Jesus Christ was the goal, the end, or the purpose of the law.  Thus, anyone who believed in Jesus might be righteous.  The Israelites were headed toward Jesus Christ.  However, the gift of belief was essential to be righteous.  How important is belief in Jesus Christ in your life?
