I think this post is very well written. Many times, we tend to over-celebrate our righteousness and end up despising and reviling those who are not as righteous as we are. Yes, we must strive for holiness. But we also must recognize who our righteousness comes from and lift Him up – not our own accomplishments.
It’s in our justification and resulting union with Christ where we find our motivation to keep God’s commands; not in behavior modification and moralism, which is false law-keeping. I find this post strikes a fine balance between two extremes. Read, Don’t Make a Savior out of Your Morality | Monergism.
