A Christian Is A New Creature

“[the Christian] is a new man, and he knows that he has been delivered from ‘the old man’ at the cost of the death of the Son of God; he owes all to God and to Christ, and this should dominate the whole of his life and come out in all he says and does.  We are all failures, we are all miserable sinners in these matters, are we not?  But realise what we should be, says the Apostle.  Let the things of the Spirit of God characterise our lives, so that as people come and talk to us they find something attractive about us, something clean and pure, something uplifting, intelligent, thoughtful and profitable; let them feel that there is an element of praise in your whole life, which causes them to say, What do they find to praise God about? where do they find it in a world like this? would that I were like that!” –D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones “Darkeness and Light — An Exposition of Ephesians 4:17-5:17” p. 338

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
