Self-Righteousness: The Anti-GospelBy Eric Parker
“One is not righteous who does much, but the one who, without work, believes much in Christ. The law says, ‘Do this,’ and it is never done. Grace says, ‘Believe in this,’ and everything is already done.”
May these truths which flow from the gospel never lose their beauty and luster. Amen.
