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; -Romans 9:31-32
When we seek righteousness by works and not faith we will fail to obtain it. We are righteous because Jesus died to make us righteous, or in right standing with God.
