Being in right relationship with God.
I am declared righteous by God in the presence of God because I have accepted the finished work of Jesus Christ.

Righteousness is an eternal "state of being" granted by God to those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior - it is eternal, irreversible and declares to the universe that the individual is in right relationship with God - done deal.
