Lie Not One to Another

A. The Christian as dead and risen with Christ, and as having put off the old man with his deeds, is to act in the truth of this, and disallow and refuse every movement of the flesh, the untruthfulness of which is unchanged, even by a new life in Christ risen. The life which he possesses in Christ is to be seen, and it only. If the believer is “in Christ” on high, Christ is in him below, and his responsibility is that “Christ” should be seen, and never anything else but “Christ.”
It is the practice of a Christian who is dead and risen with Christ dealing with his members, and refusing the action of the old man, because he is dead. He is never told that he has to die to sin in Scripture, but to act upon the great fact that he is dead with Christ, and his life is hid with Christ in God. This life is to be seen on earth in his mortal body.
