“We can think it’s a mark of spiritual sensitivity to consider everything we do as morally suspect. But this is not the way the Bible thinks about righteousness. . . . For those who have been made right with God by grace alone through faith alone and therefore have been adopted into God’s family, many of our righteous deeds are not onlynot filthy in God’s eyes, they are exceedingly sweet, precious, and pleasing to him.”

Kevin DeYoung,  The Hole in Our Holiness: Filling the Gap Between Gospel Passion and the Pursuit of Godliness (69–70)
