Fragment: Bearing the Name of Christ

As Christians, we are thrown together bearing the name of Christ, as being part of His bride; and it is sin to take any other name than His. The wife surrenders her own name in taking that of her husband. But, alas! how careless Christians are, if we look around us; how readily do they take up other names than the alone name of Jesus Christ; and thus, so to say, disown their allegiance to Him alone.
