DEU 32:4The rock! His work is perfect, for all His ways are just; a God of faithfulness and without injustice, righteous and just is He.
God’s work is perfect, and His ways are just, and this includes His work on the Cross, in rebound and in spiritual growth.
PSA 19:9The judgments of the Lord are true; they are righteous altogether.
The judgments that the justice of God makes are based upon truth and righteousness.
ISA 45:21bIs it not I, the Lord? And there is no other God besides Me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none except Me.
Please note that righteousness and Saviorship are placed together in this verse.
ROM 3:21-22But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the prophets [and how has the righteousness of God been made manifest apart from the Mosaic Law?], even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction…
It is through faith in the work of Jesus Christ on the Cross that the righteousness of God is revealed.
ROM 3:23-28For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus, whom [Christ Jesus] God [the Father] displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness [the Cross was a demonstration of His righteousness], because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed; for the demonstration, I say, of His righteousness at the present time, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. Where then is boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? Of works? No, but by a law of faith. For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.
When Jesus Christ was on the Cross, our sins were poured out on Him and judged by the justice of God, 1PE 2:24 and 2CO 5:21.
1PE 2:24aAnd He Himself bore our sins in His body on the Cross, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness.
2CO 5:21He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
