Maclaren: security

Thursday, January 22, 2015
    And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven.
    —1 Corinthians 15:45 (NIV)
    Being in Christ, it is safe to forget the past, it is possible to be sure of the future, it is possible to be diligent in the present. Then how blessed such a life! For the past—“I was the chief of sinners, but I obtained mercy;” for the future—“We shall bear the image of the heavenly;” for the present—” I press toward the mark.”
    ... Alexander Maclaren (1826-1910), Sermons preached in Manchester: Second series, New York: Funk and Wagnalls, 1902, p. 57 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 15:49; Rom. 8:29; 2 Cor. 3:18; Phil. 3:13-14; 1 Tim. 1:13-15; 1 John 3:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have set me free.
