It isn't that I don't believe we are not counted holy and it isn't confusing justification and sanctification. I know I have difficulty conveying my thoughts. It is the addition of saying "just as though we always obeyed". It may be just semantics, but my understanding is that we are made right with God because of Christ's sacrifice, we aren't turned into "Christ" or seen as the same as Christ by imputation, for no better way to put it. However we are in Christ, He alone is the object of God's pleasure, we benefit because of our being united with Christ, and in that respect we are the recipients of God's pleasure and fellowship. Sorry if I'm not too clear, I know what I'm thinking, I just don't know how to say it clearly.

Matt. 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. KJV
