Sick of Your Righteousness

September 7, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I just finished reading a little book called, Cruciform: Living the Cross-Shaped Life.  I found this quote from the book to be quite powerful.  It is taken from George Whitefield.

You must be brought to see that God may damn you for the best prayer you every put up . . . that all your duties . . . are so far from recommending you to God. . . . you must not only be sick of your original and actual sin, but you must be made sick of your righteousness, of all your duties and performances.
