The Breastplate of Righteousness

 Published on Aug 4, 2014
The Breastplate of Righteousness - Tim Keller
In our contemporary culture, the word “righteousness” has come to mean “self-righteousness.”

In the Bible, however, being “righteous” has a relational quality.
It means being presentable; it means being good enough to please. We spend so much of our time working to be presentable, accentuating our best qualities and covering our flaws.
Being a Christian means resting in Jesus’ righteousness rather that working harder to improve our own.
