Isaiah 64:6 “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away”.

Because of man’s flesh and sinful nature inherited from Adam, no one in himself can be righteous. Today’s text calls all self righteousness ‘filthy rags’.

Righteousness can be defined as living to please God on His own terms by His provision. You cannot please Him if you do not know Him and walk in the grace He gives.

Talk to God: Father, help me to understand that my righteousness is not enough in Jesus name, amen.
