Our Rags for His Robe

Rest must be the primary paradigm, for even if we strive with all our might for obedience we will always need the righteousness of Christ to stand in our place.  No goodness of our own will ever be good enough; even in our best moments our righteousness is like filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6).  If we are to stand before God we must be constantly hidden in the royal robes of his goodness.
