876. Old Covenant vs New: Attaining Right Standing With God

At the time of Moses, the Jewish people agreed to a covenant containing a law of works. They worked hard at fulfilling the agreement, but nobody (not one) ever attained it, regardless of how much they pursued it. The goal was to be right with God (righteousness). Contrast that with this … the rest of the world (Gentiles) had no covenant and were without hope in the world.

Therefore, they were not pursuing right standing with God. And yet unlike the Jewish people who were trying their best to obey stone-tablet commandments, the Gentiles attained righteousness—without working for it. It’s called faith, and it’s the driving force within a New Covenant that God established through Jesus Christ … who is the covenant and is our righteousness.
