A great sermon!

Reminded me of :

“So when the devil throws your sins in your face and declares that you deserve death and hell, tell him this: “I admit that I deserve death and hell, what of it? For I know One who suffered and made satisfaction on my behalf. His name is Jesus Christ, Son of God, and where He is there I shall be also!” – Martin Luther

and Luthers tower experience: http://www.orlutheran.com/html/tower.html

Our righteousness is an ‘alien’ (or ‘external’) righteousness, not one that is founded upon self, rather on Christ, where it is untaintable.

In almost the same way that we look to scripture as our answer to question’s or doubts that come to mind, rather than ourselves and our own reason as final and objective, we look to Christ and His righteousness, and not ourselves when doubts and accusations come also!
