You Can’t Improve Perfection

“…If our works are connected with Christ’s righteousness in the affair of justification, it will convert the covenant of grace into a covenant of works, and will effectually obscure the luster of justifying grace.  Sooner, O Self-righteous sinner, will you increase the brightness of the meridian sun by the feeble light of a candle than increase the merit, the infinite merit of the Savior’s righteousness, by your polluted performances”.

-John Colquhoun, From his “Sermons on Important Doctrines”, P.156
