I’ve just been researching a sermon and I came across this gem from C.H.Spurgeon:
It’s a sermon he delivered on July 3 1898.
Here’s a brief extract:When Jesus died, each one of us who believe in Jesus died in Him. And when He suffered, we suffered in Christ. Our sins were laid on Christ’s head and now, Christ’s merits are laid on us… Believers are, in Christ, perfect—every one of them! I tell you, Christian, you are complete in Him, you are perfect in Christ Jesus! Having been washed in His blood, clothed with His righteousness, united to His Person, you are, this moment, perfect in Him!
As Spurgeon goes on to say – “Does not this startle us?”
It’s worth thinking about.
