Your Righteousness or Christ’s?

“If a man trusts to his own righteousness, he rejects Christ’s; if he trusts Christ’s righteousness, he rejects his own.  If he will not reject his own righteousness, as too good to be renounced, if he will not venture on Christ’s righteousness, as not sufficient alone to bear him out and bring him safely off at God’s bar, he is in both convicted as an unbeliever.  And if he endeavors to patch up a righteousness before God made up of both, he is still under the law, and a despiser of gospel grace.”

– Robert Traill,  Justification Vindicated, P70
