Thank you for your response. I know you have a lot to respond to and you're doing quite a good job carrying on 10 conversations all at once.

Because righteousness = Jesus.
Jesus who was made unto us righteousness and sanctification, remember? (1 Cor 1:30)
Also known in the OT as Jehovah Tsidkenu (The LORD our Righteousness).
Grace doesn't reign through man's righteousness but through God's righteousness.
Grace doesn't reign through you, PJW. It reigns through God.
Our obedience doesn't cause grace to reign. Grace reigns all on its own.
Even so, come Lord Jesus!
