Flee to the Ark!

A Christian must deny his own righteousness—his moralities,
duties, and good works. The spider weaves a web out of her
own body. A hypocrite would spin a web of salvation out of
his own righteousness. But Paul, like the bee, sucked salvation
from the flower of Christ’s righteousness. “That I may be found
in Him—not having my own righteousness.” Philippians 3:9

Put gold in the fire—and out comes the dross. Our most
golden services are mixed with sin. “Our righteousness
are as filthy rags.” Isaiah 64:6

We must never trust in our duties—but only in Christ’s
righteousness, for salvation. Noah’s dove made use of
her wings to fly—but trusted the ark for safety!
-Thomas Watson
