“You come to the help of those who gladly do right, who remember your ways. But when we continued to sin against them, you were angry.
How then can we be saved? All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away.” Isaiah 64:5-6
After reading this passage, the only thing I can say is TGfJ- Thank God for Jesus!
It’s been awhile since I’ve read this passage but for some reason these two words keep coming to my mind, “filthy rags.” It is my opinion that one of the worst smells ever is the stagnant stench of a dirty, moist, on the verge of mold dish rag. This stench radiates from the rag like a dead animal. Now that’s pleasant!
