Meditation
COMPLETE IN HIM THE salvation of the sinner is not completed without the entire elimination of sin from the nature itself, in the sanctification and glorification, of the believer. Language and thought alike fail in depicting this blessed consummation. It almost staggers belief that man should not only be delivered from the dominion of sin, but eventually from its very presence and being. We accept it only upon the divine testimony, and because it is the logical outcome of the scheme of grace itself. If, in regeneration, a divine life is communicated to the sinner, its characteristic energy must, by its own expulsive force, drive out the sin which obstructs its growth. The power of sin is daily weakened, and there comes a moment, it may in the instant of death, when the last stain is washed away in the Saviors atoning blood, and the being of sin is forever destroyed in the soul. Transformed into the image of the divine Redeemer with a nature as holy as that in which he first came from his Creators hand. The peer now of spotless angels who never sinned, he teaches them the song of redeeming grace, to which they can only respond in the mighty chorus, Blessing and honor and glory and power be unto Him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb forever and ever. Is not the gospel, then, a glorious remedy for sin, going down to the root to destroy in there in the very seat of its life? It seals upon the conscience a perfect pardon, which takes all the guilt away; it cuts out the cancer from the man himself through the surgery of an honest repentance; it breathes a divine life into the soul that was separated from God, and completes its beneficence by the extirpation of sin itself and the transfiguration of the saint in glory. Here is no palliation of an inveterate disease, but its radical cure in a fourfold deliverance from the punishment, the dominion, the pollution, and the being of sin. Well may the apostle say, If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things have passed away; behold all things are new. B. M. Palmer
