Ralph Erskine: The Greatest Sin Is Pardonable By Christ’s Righteousness

It is a great sin to think any sin little; but it is a greater sin to think the righteousness of Christ is not above all sin. Our disobedience is the disobedience of man; but Christ’s obedience is the obedience of God: therefore, our believing in Christ doth please God better than if we had continued in innocency, and never sinned. The least sin is unpardonable without this obedience and righteousness of Christ; and the greatest is pardonable by it. Therefore, O seek in to Christ, to be clothed upon with this righteousness.

Ralph Erskine (1685–1752), “And Walking in Him, Opened” (HT: Ordinary Pastor and Of First Importance)
