Trinity VI Your Righteousness
Not only must your righteousness exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees; it must be of a different kind. For theirs was an abomination to Christ. They trusted themselves, and took stock in what they did, thinking that thereby they were pleasing to God. But Jesus unpacks the law and shows that it condemns all. And thus he himself, who is the judge, has become your adversary. Therefore agree with him about this, as also David did; confess your sins, and look away from yourself for righteousness. Find it only in him, trusting in his works and his merit. And then are you freed to do good and love your neighbor not to gain the favor of God, but rather because you have already been given that favor in Christ. Sermon for Trinity VI. The video is here.
