What privileges we have in Christ!

There are those who, having entered into this gracious experience of entire sanctification, have had their minds so occupied at first with the marvelous cleansing wrought within that for a time they have failed to grasp the full extent of their privileges in Christ.
Sheridan Baker said that soon after being sanctified he began to turn away his attention from what had been "done for him" to what he "saw before him."  He saw that a state of purity and general fulness of the Spirit were small matters in comparison to "all the fulness of God," and "living in the realm of the 'exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask or think.'"  Since that time he says, "I have been a seeker, not for pardon, or purity, or the grace already obtained, but for more and more of the Christ nature."      
-- p.215, The Epistle to the Hebrews by H. Orton Wiley
