Tony is a wretched sinner saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone to the glory of God
“How then can a man be just with God?
Or how can he be clean who is born of woman?
If even the moon has no brightness
And the stars are not pure in His sight,
How much less man, that maggot,
And the son of man, that worm!”
— Job 25:4-6
Righteousness before God is the great need of every man, yet the natural man isn’t looking for it. He doesn’t realize his sins make him a maggot, a worm in God’s eyes.
