Not for self-starters

I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. Phil. 3:9a

Nothing we do can produce righteousness. Instead Christ’s righteousness is imputed to us. There is no room for pride and congratulations if His righteousness does not originate with us. Righteousness is not a concept for self starters but for dependents, recipients, and followers.

Lord, impute to me that which brings attention to Your grace.
