I Am Unclean

In our conceit, it is easy to consider ourselves good until we meet the one who truly is.


Standing in imagination among the multitudes of old, and listening to Him, I am constrained to say, “I have found my King.”

. . .

Having been brought up in a godly home, and saved thereby from many of the vulgar forms of sin into which others who have lacked my privilege have fallen, I never trembled in the presence of Mount Sinai. I always felt the profoundest sympathy with the young man who looked into the face of Jesus, and said, “All these things have I kept from my youth up.” But while the majestic mountain of the ancient law never filled me with trembling, when I came to the clear shining of the ethic of Jesus, and stood in the presence of the rare and radiant loveliness of his perfect humanity, then I cried, “I am unclean, a sinner before God.”

—G. Campbell Morgan, The Westminster Pulpit (Sermon: The Authority of Jesus) (Baker, 2006), 1:78, 83.
