Notable Quotable: “What Is the Good News?” – Maurice Roberts

519334_w185[1]

“Here is the good news. God himself freely offers to all mankind a perfect righteousness. We are invited to go to God for it. We may ask him for it. This righteouness is like a robe that covers our nakedness and cloaks all our guilt and sin. Those who receive this robe of righteousness wear it now in this life; and they will wear it forever in heaven. This is the difference between false religion and true. False forms of religion teach people to make themselves good enough for God. True religion tells men to despair of all self-made righteouness and to seek a God-given righteouness, which he freely gives to all who ask for it.” (Maurice Roberts, “Can We Know God?”, Banner of Truth)
