I love this scripture and how you used it with this lovely silver and white cross
Whats so cool is He is our righteousness! He is in us and that is our righteousness! My own righteousness is as filthy rags. We can be holy as He is holy because of His perfect sinless life, death on the cross, resurrection and ascension back to the Father! We can have a holy life because of Him!
That would be Jerry Bridges...one of my favorite reads. I also loved "Discipline of Grace" that he wrote.
My Biggest lesson in Pursuit of Holiness was "the puruit of holiness and the sovereignty of God are a beautiful union. (they go together well). I used to struggle with those 2 truths thinking that they were oxy-morons...ahhh but now thanks to God working through his word and Jerry Bridges communication of it, I now see how beautifully they work together and this is His providence! Praise Him!
Thank you very much, I have just accepted it . One more thing, I currently have picture of a xenomorph from Aliens stored in my favorites. If you don't mind, I'll let the group us it for reference material.
