When I believe that I must make myself righteous, I end up hating my neighbor, hating Gods kingdom, hating God, and hating myself; I do the work of the Accuser for him; I become Satan’s bookkeeper. When I believe that God makes me righteous, that God in Christ Jesus justifies sinners, the old bookkeeper dies, and I begin dancing. I am Righteous.
