World's def. the quality of being morally right or justifiable
God's def. Romans 4:3- Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness.

Righteousness is faith, trust in God. We are made right not by our actions but by our belief. It is as simple as that (which is crazy). Faith is what gets God's attention, that's what pleases God (Hebrews 11:6). This is not rocket science. Place your hope in Him and you get to live in His promises. You get to cover yourself with His love. You get to soak yourself in His presence. You get to reap, usher in God himself into your life, into any situation when you believe that He came down in the form of Jesus to die on the cross and rise from the dead to be with you. He loves you that much that He came down to your mess in order to bring you back to His level. He wants you. Yes, you.
He doesn't want you when you're clean. He doesn't want you when you act right. He doesn't want you when you meet a standard. He wants you now, as is. So go to Him, seek God now when you feel unworthy. It's ok because over time, God will change you. He'll cloak you in His righteousness. You'll start to see yourself as God sees you.
But that only happens when you surrender it all to Him now.
