It can never be true that we are crucified to the world unless the heart is in constant communion with the cross of Christ. The cross comes in, in everything, as a matter of daily experience. How is one to pass into the old age of a Christian? How find one's self laid aside, no longer with any energy? Surely only by the cross. 'How can one meet difficulties with a word, and be kept in perfect quietness? Only by the cross. How can we keep under such flesh as ours? Does the " old man " ever get to be better? Not a bit! but you must learn to be able to carry the cross, saying of everything that is evil, " I have nothing to do with that, because my Lord was crucified on account of it."
G. V. W.
