It is a deeply humbling truth – would that it were more present to the mind! — that there is enough of pollution in the character, motive, and aim of the most spiritual performance which the most holy believer can present, to awaken the severest expressions of God’s spotless purity and utter hatred of sin.

But Jesus is the true Aaron: he is the great High Priest; and by his ‘one offering,’ and continual presence before the throne in ceaseless and prevalent intercession, our poor, defective, polluted services are an ‘odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well-pleasing to God.’

For the reference, see Octavius Winslow on indwelling sin and the spiritual performances of believers.
