For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Romans 10:1-21 ESV 

Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. For Moses writes about the righteousness that is based on the law, that the person who does the commandments shall live by them. 

Romans 5:9 ESV 

Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.

Galatians 3:8 ESV

And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “In you shall all the nations be blessed.”

Romans 3:4 ESV 

By no means! Let God be true though every one were a liar, as it is written, “That you may be justified in your words, and prevail when you are judged.”

2 Peter 1:10 ESV 

Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to make your calling and election sure, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall.

James 2:26 ESV 

For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.

James 2:21-25 ESV 

Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar? You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works; and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God. You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. And in the same way was not also Rahab the prostitute justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way?

James 2:20-23 ESV 

Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless? Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar? You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works; and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God.

2 Corinthians 5:21 ESV 

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
