Filthy rags righteousness.

Job 35:7 “If you are righteous, what do you give to him? Or what does he receive from your hand?” Amen. Brethren, Elihu continues to rebuke and humble Job, and this applies to us today. Many people have religion where they do works to get into Heaven, but Elihu says, “what is your righteousness to God?”. Our works as imperfect sinners is laughable to a holy and perfect God. It’s like a toddler trying to cook a gourmet meal against a 4 star chef. Our lives should be focused on loving God and others because of the gratitude that we have for the LORD performing the perfect work of the cross! Live by grace through Jesus today, not by your own feeble efforts. You don’t have to work for salvation anymore. Simply rest in Him and what He’s done. Praise God!
