Are You Good Enough? – Love Worth Finding – November 15

Are You Good Enough?

NOVEMBER 15

But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags; We all fade as a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. Isaiah 64:6

“There is none good, no not one” (Romans 3:12). If you asked every single human being on planet earth to deposit in a cup all of his or her goodness, there would not be enough goodness in that cup to save even one person!

If all our righteousness is “as filthy rags,” the cross of Jesus Christ is our only hope. Jesus took our sin upon the cross. Jesus took our shame upon the cross. Jesus took our suffering upon the cross. And by His death, He paid the sin debt. All of it.  And now we have His righteousness.

In 1906, Jessie Brown Pounds wrote these words: “I must go home by the way of the cross, there’s no other way but this; I shall ne’er get sight of the gates of light, if the way of the cross I miss.”

Get this clear with yourself: Whose righteousness are you depending on? Your own? Your accumulated lifetime of “good works”? Or the righteousness of the sinless Lamb of God, Who became your substitute on the Cross and paid your sin debt in full?
