Rags To Riches

I’m Dr. Bob, and for just a Mentoring Minute, I want you to reflect on this thought. Manufactured self-righteousness, self-determined morality… and the lifestyle that goes with it are made from an emptiness of truth. These are cut from the cloth of self-deception. They are nothing more than the stuff of filthy, worthless rags. Manufactured righteousness and self-determined morality have no strength, no integrity, and no ability to justify or make you right in the sight of God. Here is the uncompromising truth. Righteousness is surrender to biblical truth, as only God defines it. The only gate to righteousness is repentance. The only clothes you can wear when you stand before God are robes of His righteousness. He is the only One who can provide these robes. You might say He is the Almighty Tailor. I strongly suggest this is in what you clothe yourself. Put it on and keep it on. Wear it always, as best as you can. The righteousness of God in Christ cannot be self-manufactured. It is the gift of riches only your surrender will provide. I’m Dr. Bob. Let there be no more manufactured righteousness; no more self- determined morality. The righteousness of God in Christ is your inheritance. Wear it well. You can listen to my previous Mentoring Minutes at www.mentoringministry.com/blogs. While you are there, go to the “Free Resources” and look at my series, “The Four T’s.” It will help you to dress for success.
