All Our Righteous Deeds

All our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment; And all of us wither like a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.” – Isa. 64:6

All our good works, ALL of them, are contaminated. They do not and can not save us.

Only Jesus saves.

Of course, that doesn’t mean we don’t do good works: Good works don’t save people, but saved people do good works.

Martin Luther said God doesn’t need our good works, but our neighbor does.
