Have you received Him?

A.B. Simpsonby A.B. Simpson

That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us —Romans 8:4

Do you know the mistake you may be making? You may be saying: “It is not possible for me to be good; no one ever was perfect, and it is no use for me to try.” I agree with the first sentence, “No one ever was perfect.” But I cannot agree with the second, “There is no use in trying.”

There is a divine righteousness available to you. I don’t mean merely that which pardons your sins-I believe that, too, but I mean far more. I mean the righteousness that comes into your soul and unites itself with the fibers of your being. I mean Christ-your life, your purity-who makes you feel as He feels, think as He thinks, love as He loves, hate as He hates, and [partake] of the divine nature. That is God’s righteousness-that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, not by us but in us.

it is not our hands and feet merely, but our very instincts, our very desires, our very natures springing up in harmony with His own. Have you received Him? He will come and fulfill all right things in you if today you will open your heart.

Adjusting To Fulfill The Will of God

Make you perfect in every good work—Hebrews 13:21

The prayer at the close of the Letter to the Hebrews is beautiful:

Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do his will (Hebrews 13:20-21).

The phrase "make you perfect in every good work" literally means, "adjust you in every good work."

It is a great thing to be adjusted-adjusted to our surroundings and circumstances rather than trying to have them adjusted to us. Adjusted to the people we are thrown with. Adjusted to the work God has for us, not trying to get God to help us to do our work. Adjusted to fulfill the very will and plan of God for us in our whole life. This is the secret of rest, power and freedom in every spiritual endeavor.
