Christ, My Righteousness

“Thy righteousness is in Heaven,  And I thought that I could see Jesus Christ at God’s right hand. Yea, there indeed was my righteousness, so that wherever I was, or whatever I was doing, God could not say about me that I did not have righteousness, for it was there standing before Him. I also saw that it was not my good feelings that made my righteousness better and that my bad feelings did not make my righteousness worse, for my righteousness was Jesus Christ Himself, the same yesterday, today and forever.”

-John Bunyan, from his “Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners”, p. 80
