DO you not feel in your own soul that perfection is not in you?
Does not every day teach you that?
Every tear which trickles from your eye, weeps "imperfection"; every harsh word
which proceeds from your lip, mutters "imperfection."
You have too frequently had a view of your own heart to dream
for a moment of any perfection in yourself.
But amidst this sad consciousness of imperfection,
here is comfort for you—you are "perfect in Christ Jesus."
In God's sight, you are "complete in Him;" even now you are "accepted in the Beloved."
But there is a second perfection, yet to be realized, which is sure to all the seed.
Is it not delightful to look forward to the time when every stain of sin shall be removed from the believer, and he shall be presented faultless before the throne, without spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing?
The Church of Christ then will be so pure, that not even the eye of Omniscience will see a spot or blemish in her; so holy and so glorious, that Hart did not go beyond the truth when he said—
Holy as the Holy One."
Then shall we know, and taste, and feel the happiness of this vast but short sentence, "Complete in Christ." Not till then shall we fully comprehend the heights and depths of the salvation of Jesus.
Doth not thy heart leap for joy at the thought of it?
Black as thou art, thou shalt be white one day; filthy as thou art, thou shalt be clean.
Oh, it is a marvellous salvation this! Christ takes a worm and transforms it into an angel;
Christ takes a black and deformed thing and makes it clean and matchless in His glory,
peerless in His beauty, and fit to be the companion of seraphs.
O my soul, stand and admire this blessed truth of perfection in Christ.
