Not right

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 7:24 pm

Romans 3:10 as it is written:
“None is righteous, no, not one;

This is a real sweeping statement but I defy anyone to disagree that it applies to them on their own.  I certainly can’t.  I know I’m far from righteous, no matter how hard I try.  There have been millions of people ‘better’ than me at doing the right thing.  The interesting thing is that the more righteous someone seems to be, the more they realise how unrighteous they are.  It’s a moving target, something that recedes as I try to approach it.

Thank You that this isn’t the end of the story.  You haven’t set me up to fail.  You have offered this righteousness that I could never reach as a gift.  You’ve wiped the slate clean, given me the strength to live right and You forgive me when I go wrong.  You are my righteousness.
