Righteousness is something we achieve by what we do, not something that gets imputed to us. I know you have been told in church you have the imputed righteousness of Christ because you believe in Him as your Lord and Savior. But the Bible says in 1.John 3:7 those who practice righteousness are righteous.
The opposite of righteousness is sin (1.John 3:4), so if you are not practicing righteousness, you are living in sin. This is why Matthew 7:21-23 says people who are Christians and confess Jesus as their Lord and Savior will be denied entrance to heaven when they die. Confessing Him as Lord and Savior does not make your righteous, deciding to live by His instructions in the Torah (the Mosaic law) makes you righteous.
The Bible says righteousness cannot save you or reconcile you to Yehovah because you have already sinned.
Even though it is easy to obey the Torah (1.John 5:3, Deut 30:4) it cannot and will not reconcile you to Him. The only way to be reconciled to Yehovah is by faith in the cross of Yeshua (Jesus Christ).
The cross of Yeshua is the place where He died for our sins, and the Bible says without the shedding of blood there cannot be forgiveness of sin. (Hebr 9:22). You are guilty of breaking the Torah if you decide to start obeying the Torah it will not and cannot forgive you of your sins. But if you decide to believe Yeshua died for your sins and His Blood was shed for you, the Bible says in John 3:16, 1:12 you will be reconciled to Yehovah and forgiven.
In James 2:10-26 it says if you believe in something it has to show itself in how you live your life.
If you believe He died for your sins that faith has to show itself in a decision to obey righteousness, and if the Bible says righteousness comes by obedience to the law of Moses (the Torah), your faith in the cross has to show itself in obedience to the Torah.
If there is no desire in your heart to obey the Torah you are not saved.
If there is no desire in your heart to appreciate and worship Yeshua for what He did for you on the cross, you are not reconciled to Yehovah.
A victorious Christian life can only come by a daily decision to believe in the cross and obey the Torah. (Rev 12:10)
