Righteousness Sermon Illustrations

The Lord will guard the righteous well,
Their way to Him is known;
The way of sinners far from God,
Shall surely be o'erthrown.—Selected


How can a man trust in his own righteousness? It is like seeking shelter under one's own shadow. We may stoop to the very ground; and, the lower we bend, we still find that our shadow is beneath us. But, if a man flee to the shadow of a great rock or of a wide-spreading tree, he will find abundant shelter from the rays of the noonday sun. So human merits are unavailing; and Christ alone is able to save to the uttermost those who come unto God by him.—Medhurst
