Whoever is sure they are righteous is not saved because we must acknowledge we don’t have all the answers and our need for Christ in our lives. In Matthew 9:13 Jesus says,  “But go ahead and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Jesus is quoting Hosea 6:6 when he says, “I desire mercy, not sacrifice.” Jesus doesn’t need our ritualistic sacrifice. What He wants is our recognition of our need for His mercy on us and our need to have mercy on others.
