Griffith Thomas: different, yet the same

Wednesday, January 10, 2018
    Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.
    —Romans 8:1-4 (NIV)
    [Of Romans 8:2-3]
    It is essential to preserve with care both sides of this truth. Christ and the Spirit are different yet the same, the same yet different. Perhaps the best expression we can give is that while their Personalities are never identical, their presence always is.
    ... W. H. Griffith Thomas (1861-1924), The Holy Spirit of God, London: Longman’s, Green, 1913, p. 144 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are present to me always!
