Our goodness comes from God, not our own effort

“Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours:” (II Peter 1:1)

All people are born sinners, but God will change true believers through the righteousness of Jesus. Nobody is saved by their own good works or their intelligence. Their salvation and righteousness is a gift that is given to those who believe in the Son of God and repent of their sins.
