FILTHY RAGS

The truth is that none of us deserves anything from God. The Bible says that there is none righteous, no, not one! (Romans 3:10). Even those who seem to be super spiritual have a righteousness that the Bible calls "filthy rags" (Isaiah 64:6). The good news of the gospel is that God loves us anyway. By grace, God reaches out to all of us, regardless of our shortcomings. (Ephesians 2:8,9)
