Same, Yet Not the Same

“How different will be the body of the saint on the resurrection morning from its present state–the same body which was sown in the grave, and yet not the same!  So too with those saints alive on earth at the Redeemer’s return:  ‘Who shall change our vile body that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body’ (Phil. 3:21).  Thus it is, in measure, at regeneration:  the soul undergoes a Divine work of renovation and transformation:  a new light shines into the understanding, a new Object engages the affections, a new power moves the will.  It is the same individual, and yet not the same.  ‘Once I was blind, but now I see’ is his blessed experience.”  –A.W. Pink “Practical Christianity” p. 67

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.
