2 Corinthians 5.21 “God made him who knew no sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God” The grand theological term for this is imputed righteousness. It is given to you not acquired by you.

Others of you have his righteousness but need to cinch up your belt. You know the truth but God is clearly calling you to live the truth. To truth in love.
