Now he which stablisheth
us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God, who hath also
sealed us—2. Cor.
The seal or mark of the
true disciple is the possession of the Spirit of Christ. The
manifestations of this holy Spirit are threefold: (1) love supreme
to God and joyful loyalty to His cause even at the cost of
suffering; (2) love for the brethren—unselfish, noble, pure—a desire
for their welfare, which is always alert to do them good; (3) love,
sympathetic, for the world, prompting to good works, as opportunity
may afford, and to a desire and effort always to live peaceably with
