The night is far
spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off
the works of
darkness, and let us put on the armour of lightóRom. 13:12.
The works of darkness
would be any works whatever that would not stand the fullest
investigation, that would not stand approval in the light of the new
dispensation, if it were fully ushered in. Let us remember that we
belong to the new dispensation, and not to the old, and should,
therefore, live in accordance with our citizenship and our
responsibility toward the Prince of Light and in opposition to the
prince of darkness, his works and his ways.
