” ‘We are His workmanship’; He, and not ourselves, has made us what we are spiritually. ‘Created in Christ Jesus’ means made vitally one with Him. ‘In Christ’ always has reference to union with HIm: in Ephesians 1:4, to a mystical or election union; in 1 Corinthians 15:22 , to a federal or representative one; in 1 Corinthians 6:17, and 2 Corinthians 5:17, to a vital or living one. Saving faith (product of the Spirit’s quickening us) makes us branches of the living Vine from whom our fruit proceeds (Hos. 14:8). ‘Created in Christ Jesus unto good works’ expresses the design and efficacy of God’s workmanship, being parallel with ‘This people have I formed for Myself: they shall show forth My praise’ (Isa. 43:21).” –A.W. Pink “Practical Christianity” p. 66
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.
