The believer’s perfection

(Gleanings from the Inner Life of Ruth Bryan)

I am most exceedingly distressed by my sins, and feel the need of Jesus’ precious blood every hour!
I need a supply from the Fountain! “On that daya fountain will be opened… a fountain to cleanse them from all their sins and defilement.” Zech. 13:1

Feeling fully what I am in myself, and proving afresh that “in my flesh dwells no good thing” – in this sad state I fly to Jesus as my only refuge!

Oh that the depth of my sin and misery may be overcome by His rich grace, that with Mary I may weep at His dear feet, and love much, having much forgiven.

While in the body we shall never be free from sin. I had been looking for something from and in my flesh which the Word of God does not warrant me to expect. “That which is born of the flesh is flesh” – and ever will be!

The believer’s perfection is in Christ. Oh that He may condescend to teach me, and lead me to look straight out of self – to a glorious Christ!

“And you are complete in Him.” Colossians 2:10
