That the name of our Lord yesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Thess. i. 12.
Put ye on the Lord yesus Christ.
Rom. xiii. 14.
Send down Thy likeness from above,
And let this my adorning be:
Clothe me with wisdom, patience, love.
With lowliness and purity.
EVIDENTLY, in order to be a manifestation of Christ we must be in some way like Him. He is a Christian who follows Christ, who measures all things by the standard of His approbation, who would not willingly say a word which he would not like to have Christ hear, nor do an act which he would not like to have Christ see. He is a Christian who tries to be the kind of neighbor Christ would be, and the kind of citizen Christ would be, and who asks himself in all the alternatives of his business life, and his social life, and his personal life, what would the Master do in this case ? The best Christian is he who most reminds the people with whom he lives of the Lord Jesus Christ. He who never repiinds anybody of the Lord Jesus Christ is not a Christian at all.
