Our Obedience, continued

“Although the law as a rule of duty to believers requires perfect obeidence from them; yet it admits of God’s accepting their sincere obedience performed in faith, though it is imperfect.  It admits of His accepting this obedience, not indeed as any part of their justifying righteousness, not as the foundation of His acceptance of their persons as righteous, but as the fruit and evidence of their being vitally united to His beloved Son as Jehovah, their Righteousness, and of their being already accepted in Him.”

-John Colquhoun, From his “A Treatise on the Law and Gospel”, P.33
