External/Internal Righteousness

“The justifying righteousness of Christ is external; the sanctifying righteousness of the Spirit is internal. The righteousness whereby we are justified is perfect, but not inherent; that whereby we are sanctified is inherent but not perfect; the righteousness in which we shall be clothed in the world to come is both perfect and inherent; in that righteousness every believer in Christ Jesus will shine as the stars for ever and ever”.

– W.B.Mackenzie, from his “The Justified Believer”, p.23
