The Danger of Self-Righteousness

Paul showed the danger of self-righteousness when he spoke of the Jews who have rejected Christ, saying, “For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God” (Romans 10:3).
They wanted to do things their way and that led them to reject God’s way. Is that a serious matter? If you are reading this, you are the kind of person who knows that is a serious matter.
The way to avoid this problem ourselves is to know God’s righteousness rather than being ignorant of it as the Jews were, and to reject our own righteousness and to do everything we can to accept God’s righteousness as revealed in His blessed Son Jesus Christ.
