Self-Righteousness Doesn't Win Battles
We who know Christ as our Savior are righteous only through Him, not through our biblical or worldly knowledge; our "moral standards"; our words, prayers, or Christian language; or our actions. If we who know Christ default to "we're righteous because of Jesus," but don't understand that righteousness comes through Him, we may forget that we still need Him.
Jesus is the answer. Self-righteousness is not what wins battles.
