HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
“That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Romans 8:4).
My beloved friends, fellow readers, brothers and sisters, do you know the mistake some of us are making? Some of us say: “It is not possible for me to be good; no man ever was perfect, and it is no use for me to try.” That is the mistake many of us are making.
I agree with the first sentence, “No man ever was perfect”; but I don’t agree with the second, “There is no use trying.” There is divine righteousness that we may have. We can disagree on any statement but the facts remain the same. In this situation, it doesn’t matter where the perfection is located, we must try to find it and stay with it, “comes hell or high water”.
I don’t mean merely that which pardons your sins–I believe that, too–but I mean far more; I mean that which comes into your soul and unites itself with the fibers of your being; I mean Christ; your life, your purity, making you feel as Christ feels; think as Christ thinks, love as Christ loves, hate as Christ hates, and be “partakers of the divine nature.” That is God’s righteousness; “that the righteousness of the law might be fulfiled in us,” not by us, but in us; not our hands and feet merely, but our very instincts, our very desires, our very nature springing up in harmony with His own.
Have you got Him, dear friends, my brothers and sisters? He will come and fulfil all right things in you if today you will open your heart. All He is asking for you to do is to let go and let Him take control. He will make a way where there is no way. Give God some praise and thanks this day and bless His Holy Name.
