The moment the man believes in Jesus Christ he is in the righteousness of Christ — perfectly righteous; he has put upon him the Saviour’s garments. You heard Mr. Weaver say on this platform — I thought it was a good illustration — that one day he met with a very poor man who was in rags.Read: C.H. Spurgeon: Righteousness in Christ
The Nature and Basis of Assurance. At the commencement of Matthew 5, we find the Lord Jesus pronouncing blessed a certain class of people. They are not named as “believers” or saints,” but instead are described by their characters; and it is only by comparing ourselves and others with the description that the Lord Jesus […]Read: The Nature and Basis of Assurance by A.
