SEPTEMBER 7

 

 If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new—

2 Cor. 5:17.

 

  These new creatures in Christ Jesus know each other not according to the flesh but according to the spirit. In each other’s spirits or new minds there are the noblest sentiments, the highest aspirations, that which is good, true, noble, pure, whatever may be their weaknesses according to the flesh. They love each other from the new standpoint of intention, will, harmony with God, and their friendship for one another grows increasingly as they perceive each other’s energy in fighting the good fight of faith against the evil influences of the world, the flesh and the Adversary. Nor tongue nor pen can properly express the love, the friendship, which subsists between these new creatures in Christ Jesus, to whom old things have passed away, and all things have become new.
