I wanted to add another passage of scripture to a previous post of mine Room For Boasting?

I always hear people talking about how they want to hear "Well done, good and faithful servant" at the judgment. Which most people use to imply that they have been good Christians therefore, they are worthy of eternal life. But the Holy Spirit through Paul said in Acts that those who are unworthy are those who think they are worthy and reject the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. (Acts 13:44-46)

Luke 17:7-10:

"Will any one of you who has a servant plowing or keeping sheep say to him when he has come in from the field, 'Come at once and recline at table'? Will he not rather say to him, 'Prepare supper for me, and dress properly, and serve me while I eat and drink, and afterward you will eat and drink'? Does he thank the servant because he did what was commanded? So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, 'We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.'"

Your righteousness is not your own. I hope that when I do something good, I don't even know I'm doing it. That is freedom. Anything else is from the tree of knowledge of good and evil (self) and not from the Tree of Life (Jesus).
