Imputed Righteousness

You who have believed with your hearts unto righteousness, give God the whole glory; and pray that you may continually have more enlivening views of that imputed righteousness on which He has caused you to trust. As on the one hand, nothing can warrant and animate your joy; so, on the other (to quote a man, now with God), “Nothing can effectually kill sin but a clear beholding of Christ’s righteousness.” Cleave to this sure and steadfast anchor, and you will finally arise superior, both to the waves of affliction and to the mud of your own lusts and corruptions.
