Grace, Sin and Righteousness

Reading through Paul Tripp's twitter feed has been a massive blessing. Here are a few of what I think are his best tweets...

  • If the righteousness of Christ is my hope, then I am freed from any need to polish and display my own.
  • Christ fulfilled the law's requirement, not so you would be a law breaker, but one who celebrates the grace that enables you to keep it.
  • The greatest threat to the church isn't atheism or materialism, but moralism that celebrates a righteousness that doesn't come from Christ.
  • Admitting you are a sinner means running from your tendency to defend, excuse, or shift the blame for what God clearly says is wrong.
  • Why is legalism dangerous? It makes you think you're more righteous than you are and that you don't need grace as much as you do.
