Romans 9: 30-33
What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith. But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness. Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone; As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
We are saved by faith alone, not by works. The pursuit of righteousness by the law goes awry when that pursuit becomes about our own accomplishments. We need to follow Jesus in faith. In the end, it is not about our accomplishments, but rather, the path that we followed. Jesus is The Way, the only Way.
