Spurgeon – Complete in Christ

I found today’s reading in Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening especially encouraging. The following meditation is from 2 Corinthians 5:21: “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”

Mourning Christian! Why do you weep? Are you mourning over your own corruptions? Look to your perfect Lord, and remember, you are complete in him; you are in God’s sight as perfect as if you had never sinned; nay, more than that, the Lord our Righteousness has put a divine garment upon you, so that you have more than the righteousness of man – you have the righteousness of God . . . Your standing is not in yourself – it is in Christ; your acceptance is not in yourself, but in your Lord; you are as much accepted of God today, with all your sinfulness, as you will be when you stand before his throne, free from all corruption . . . and all this because the divine Lord “was made to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
