Arndt: crucified with Him

Thursday, November 9, 2023
    Commemoration of Margery Kempe, Mystic, after 1433
    Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires.
    —Galatians 5:24 (NIV)
    If thou believest that Christ was crucified for the sins of the world, thou must with Him be crucified... If thou refusest to comply with this order, thou canst not be a living member of Christ, nor be united with Him by faith.
    ... John Arndt (1555-1621), True Christianity, tr. A. W. Boehm, Boston: Lincoln & Edmands, 1809, II.iv.18, p. 383 (see the book)
    See also Gal. 5:24; Matt. 16:24; Mark 8:34; Luke 9:23; John 1:29; Rom. 1:16; 6:6-7; Gal. 2:20; 6:14; Eph. 2:4-5; 1 John 2:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may I daily bear my cross for Your sake.
