When God Looks Upon His Elect

When we look upon ourselves, we often see ourselves as the most stupid, the most ignorant, the most vile, the most unworthy, the most earthly and sensual wretches that God can permit to live! At least, that is the view we take of ourselves when we are really humbled in our own eyes. But when God looks upon His elect, He does not look upon them as they often look upon themselves, but AS THEY STAND IN CHRIST, accepted in the Beloved, without spot or wrinkle, or any such thing! He does not see His people as they often see themselves, full of wounds and bruises and putrefying sores, but clothed in the perfection, beauty, and loveliness of their Head and Husband.
