A Holy Paradox

It is those who feel their sin with hurt and penitence who are the truly righteous, and it is those who are sure they are righteous and need no repentance who are the real sinners. It is the dispirited who live before God, and it is the marvelously spiritual who often ex(s)pire from God’s presence. (Dale Bruner, The Christbook, pg 161)
