Someday when I’m perfect…

Great quote in the LifeChange study for Colossians (pp54-55). They quote William Law dealing with the idea that if we were in some other state, then we would be better people than we are now. The passage ends thus:

Let us not vainly say that if we had  lived in the days of our Lord, we would have followed him, or that if we could work miracles, we would devote ourselves to his glory. To follow Christ as far as we can in our present state and do all we are able for his glory is as acceptable to him as if we were working miracles in his name…

We must reckon ourselves no further as living like Christians than we live like Christ.
