For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:20 (NKJV)
Jesus, I have no righteousness apart from you.
For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. 2 Corinthians 1:20 (NKJV)

Holy Trinity, One God, save me and vindicate me by your strength.
A word received: Look to me with hope and expectation.
