"Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, but who can find a faithful man?" - Proverbs 20 V6

"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness." - Matthew 23 V27

Men try to justify their sinful deeds with their self proclaimed righteousness. It is a common perception that good deeds is what makes people good. Jesus said, "No one is good except God". We can do all the good deeds we want or we can become very "religious" people, but unless we are right with God, nothing counts. There is only one way to enter heaven and that is with the righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ. By our own merit we cannot enter the kingdom of God, but when we receive the Lord Christ, we are clothed with His righteousness.

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
