"The man who has been born again, and who has the divine nature within him, is a man who is righteous and his righteousness does exceed that of the Pharisees. He is no longer living for self and his own attainments, he is no longer self-righteous and self satisfied. He has become poor in spirit, meek and merciful. He hungers and thirsts after righteousness. He loves God, yes, unworthily, alas, but he loves Him and longs for His glory. [This] is a righteousness that far exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees."

D. Martin Lloyd-Jones
