Note that the righteousness of God is unveiled. The veil is the flesh. God's righteousness is a free gift that is only available through the blood of Christ. It is part of grace. Righteousness is by grace through faith. We have access into this grace by faith. Here, in this verse, we see that we go from faith to ever greater faith.

Don't try to rationalize your own faith or hypnotize yourself into believing. Faith comes from Jesus. He is the author and the finisher of our faith. Faith comes by hearing and hearing comes from a word (utterance) of God. When we read or hear the Bible, we need to let God speak to us and not to rationalize the meaning of the Bible. When we see creation, we need to hear God's voice. The Bible says that God speaks through creation. We need to see Christ in our brother and sister in Christ. We need to discern the body of Christ and hear when God is using a brother or sister as His mouth piece. We need to hear God's voice in a still small voice.

(some caveats about hearing God's Voice)

Righteousness exercises our heavenly vision and improves it. Righteousness always starts with God--we can't initiate it. God leads. He speaks in many ways, especially through the members of Christ the Body, through ministries. (1 Cor. 12:3) Here is the process: 1. Faith comes by hearing the word (literally, utterance) of God. (Ro. 10:17) 2. Hearing requires humility and reverence, which is the beginning of wisdom. (Pr. 9:10) 3. Faith gives access to God's grace (Ro. 5:2) including the free gift of righteousness. (Ro. 5:17, Ro. 10:3, Isa. 45:8, Heb. 12:28) 4. Grace does the work of God in us. (1 Cor. 15:10)

These four steps take only a moment and continue moment by moment perpetually. This is God's process for righteousness in thought, word, and deed, bringing us from glory to glory. Of course, we can slow, stop, or reverse our progress by ignoring, adding to, or taking from God's leading or by trying to self-generate works. Anything that is not of faith is sin. (Ro. 14:23) Righteousness is love. (Ro. 5:5, Ro. 13:8-10, Gal. 5:13-14, James 2:8) Righteousness always leads toward the establishment of God's pattern.

When we hear His voice, we look into the perfect law of liberty. We see ourselves, the ministry, Christ in us, as opposed to the fleshly man of sin, and we see ourselves in the context of Christ the Body, every order, ministry, and office. When we respond to the leading of God by allowing Him to do His work through us, we respond to the perfect law of liberty. (James 1:22-25)

This transfigures us. God's righteousness brings holiness and redemption. (Ro. 6:19, 1 Cor. 1:30, 2 Cor. 3:18) When we discern Christ, we see Him as He is and become like Him. (1 John 3:2, James 1:22-25, 1 Cor. 13:9-12) While righteousness is in the moment, holiness is a transfiguration of what you are, a change in your mind. When we turn to Jesus instead of our own understanding, God plants His holy seed and the fruit of the Spirit springs up. We reap what we sow. (Hos. 8:7, Gal. 6:7-9) Holiness is Christ (your ministry) formed in you. (Gal. 4:19) It is progressive from glory to glory and from faith to faith. Holiness brings redemption. Redemption is freedom from sin's bondage.
