Holy Like God

“My sanctification will be finished just before I die; but not until that moment will I ever claim perfection in myself. But at that moment when I depart, my spirit will have its last baptism in the Holy Spirit’s fire. It will be put in the crucible for its last testing in the furnace; and then, free from all imperfections, and fine, like a wedge of pure gold, it will be presented at the feet of God without the least degree of impurity. O glorious hour! O blessed moment! I think I would still long to die if there were no heaven, if I could only have that last purification, and come up from Jordan’s stream pure white from the washing. Oh, to be washed white, clean, pure, perfect! There will not be one angel more pure than I will be— yes, not God himself more holy! And I will be able to say, in a double sense, ‘Great and Holy God, I am clean, through Jesus’ blood I am clean, through the Spirit’s work I am clean too!'”

—Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)
