Your Spots And Blots



(Thomas Brooks, "The Unsearchable Riches of Christ")

"THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS." Jeremiah 23:6

"They are without fault before the throne of God." Rev. 14:5

Weak hearts are apt to sit down troubled and discouraged,
when they look upon that body of sin which is in them, and
those imperfections which attend their best services. They
are ready to say, "We shall one day perish by the strength
of our lusts, or by the defects of our services!" Oh but, to
strengthen them against all discouragements, they should
remember this
that they stand before God, clothed with
the righteousness of their Saviour. "They are without fault
before the throne of God." Revelation 14:5

So in Songs of Solomon 4:7, " Thou art all fair, my love;

there is no spot in thee."

There is no flaw in God's account. God looks upon weak

saints in the Son of His loveand sees them all
lovely. Ah, poor souls! You are apt to look upon your spots
and blots
, and to cry out with the leper not only "Unclean!
unclean!" but "Undone! undone!" Well, forever remember
this
that you stand before God in the righteousness of
Christ; upon which account you always appear before the
throne of God without fault; where you are all lovely, and
where there is no flaw in you.

"They are without fault before the throne of God." Rev. 14:5
