Read this slowly and thoughtfully. Lot’s of wisdom and instruction flowing here:

It is a great sin to think any sin little; but it is a greater sin to think the righteousness of Christ is not above all sin. Our disobedience is the disobedience of man; but Christ’s obedience is the obedience of God: therefore, our believing in Christ doth please God better than if we had continued in innocency, and never sinned. The least sin is unpardonable without this obedience and righteousness of Christ; and the greatest is pardonable by it. Therefore, O seek in to Christ, to be clothed upon with this righteousness.

from, Ralph Erskine ”And Walking in Him, Opened”

(HT: First Importance)

One thought on “Be Clothed in the Righteousness of Christ”

  1. Chris Cole says:

    I am a member of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, the ecclesiastical descendants of the Erskines. Our denominational schools are called Erskine College and Erskine Theological Seminary. I am glad to see someone else appreciating the spiritual wisdom of Ralph and Ebenezer Erskine.
