What If I Could Become Righteous By My Own Efforts?

Which of these people would you like more?

SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS – Learned that he was able to be pretty perfect in his behavior.  Way better than  most other people.

IMPUTED-RIGHTEOUSNESS – Believes that he is 100% before God but knows that this is a huge unmerited gift.  But he knows that his behaviors don’t measure up to God’s perfect standard.

By the way, do you know why God has to have such a high standard of perfection for us?  There’s a great reason and I’ll tell you if this is a matter that troubles you at all.
