Confessing Your Righteousness

Posted: October 8, 2009 in Quotes

“Here’s the point. Before you can ever make a clean and unamended confession of your sin, you have to first begin by confessing your righteousness. It’s not just your sin that separates you from God; your righteousness does as well. Because, when you are convinced you are righteous, you don’t seek the forgiving, rescuing, and restoring mercy that can be found only in Jesus Christ.”

-Paul David Tripp, Whiter Than Snow.
